Boston Security Analysts Society Call for Volunteers
BSAS Committees were formed as a way to connect members, provide a forum
for reviewing BSAS programs and offerings, and to help the organization deliver on its goals and
objectives. BSAS relies on its volunteers to continue delivering quality programs and events,
and we encourage anyone who is interested to get involved. Volunteering is also a great way to develop
leadership skills and be the face of the profession in Boston. There's an opportunity for everyone-just
let us know what most interests you.
Please Note: Joining a committee or task force requires a time commitment and while we understand
volunteers may not make every meeting, we ask that you make every effort to attend committee
meetings. We also ask that you limit your involvement to one (1) committee. Committee meetings are
scheduled at the discretion of the chair and committee members.
