Get Involved at ITNS

We want to hear from any and all members who are interested in getting involved! 

One of the most popular reasons individuals join associations is to network with other professionals in their field. ITNS provides its members with many opportunities to connect with colleagues. Serving on a committee or task force is an excellent way to get to know others in ITNS.

  • Or subjects for which you consider yourself an expert?

Below are some of the areas to get connect with and work with your colleagues: 

Nominations Committee  

Do you have any experience in recruitment, interviewing, and/or the selection of leaders? Or have you ever engaged in volunteer leadership development for another organization? If so, you may be the perfect candidate to serve on the Nominations Committee. The call for volunteers opens in early Spring.  

Annual Meeting  

There are several ways to engage through the annual meeting in additions to attending such as:  

  • Submit an Abstract: Become involved by submitting an abstract for a podium or poster presentation at the Annual Meeting 
  • Abstract Reviewer Task Force: Each year, ITNS searches for members interested in reviewing and scoring Annual Meeting abstract submissions. This is a great opportunity for those new and experienced to provide insight and feedback on professional development content and educational topics presented at ITNS’s premier event. 

ITNS Speaker’s Bureau 

Volunteer to be part of the Speaker’s Bureau and share your area of expertise. By joining this pool of speakers, ITNS will have a go-to resource of members who possess knowledge on specific topics as educational offerings are developed for the transplantation nurse.    

Young Professional Committee  

The Young Professional Committee (YPC) consists of transplant nurses under the age of 38. The purpose of the YPC Committee is to create and deliver relevant resources, education, and engagement opportunities for the young transplant nurse community. From evaluating and making recommendations for the Young Professionals (YP) community, the YPC also supports the creation and/or review of YP content via online learning, webinars, and Annual Meeting sessions. In addition, the YPC supports ITNS in growing membership by generation engagement opportunities that are relevant, interesting, and impactful for the young professional. Watch for the call for new committee members.
