ACSM offers 21 Special Interest Groups that cover diverse, high-level subjects ranging from Aging to Strength and Conditioning. The groups are a forum for focused discussion, activity, and debate among members with similar, specific interests. Each interest group hosts a yearly meeting at ACSM’s Annual Meeting, promote current news and research, share professional opportunities (including job openings, grant opportunities, and more), and connect ACSM members across the country and globe.
Any ACSM Member, including Student Members, can join Special Interest Groups for free by attending the interest group meeting and signing your name on the roster!
The meetings at the Annual Meeting are Wednesday, May 29 from from 5:45 – 7:15 p.m. and Thursday, May 30 from 6:15 – 7:45 p.m.
