Call for nominations to serve on an ASHG Committee 

The call for 2020 ASHG Committee nominations is now closed. The deadline for nominations was Wednesday, March 13, 2019, 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time. 

Thank you for your thoughtful consideration of nominees who are not only accomplished genetics professionals, but also are willing to give their time and effort to promote the Society and its goals among members, policymakers, and the broader genetics community.

ASHG is committed to ensuring that the composition of its committees reflect the diversity – scientifically and otherwise – of our membership, and believe that a diverse leadership structure provides the variety of perspectives and ideas needed to develop high-quality programs. 

An ASHG Portal login is required to access the nomination submission site. This is the same login if you have recently joined/renewed as an ASHG member. If you do not have a ASHG Portal login, create an ASHG Portal account. If you forgot your password, reset your ASHG Portal password. Please note: your username is the email address associated with your membership. Upon login, you will be asked to give the nomination system permission to access your ASHG account information.

Nominations must include the nominee's CV and a brief statement about the nominee's qualifications and relevant experience. Only ASHG members in good standing (must be current 2019 member) can be nominated. Self-nominations are encouraged.

Positions are open on the following Committees for 2020: 

  • Awards Committee
  • Communications Committee
  • Information & Education Committee 
  • Nominating Committee 
  • Program Committee 
  • Social Issues Committee

After the submission deadline, the committees will review all the nominations and will work with committee members and Society leadership to finalize 2020 committee composition by late summer.
