How to Apply

  1. Review eligible committees and work groups that welcome volunteers here.
  2. Then, fill out and submit your application by June 30, 2022. You may apply to more than one committee. If you currently serve on a committee and your term is ending, you will need to reapply.
To successfully apply for volunteer positions, you must be willing to attend committee meetings and actively participate. In most cases, you must also be a CAR member in good standing, though there are a few committees that represent a wider range of participants by including non-CAR members. Committee members are notified in September for terms that take effect October 1, the start of our fiscal year.
