Registered Conference attendees are & automatically ACRM members

There is so much to ACRM it’s hard to put into words. We’ve learned that it’s easier to learn about ACRM by experiencing ACRM membership first-hand. That’s why we give non-members a FREE 6-month introductory ACRM membership automatically with conference registration. So if you’re not already signed-up, register now & start connecting today. Experience and connect with everything ACRM has to offer — right now — before, during, and after the conference, too.

MEMBER BENEFITS: Community Groups

Put your member benefits to work right away by joining an ACRM community group.

The dedicated volunteers working within ACRM committees and groups are the primary driving force advancing the mission of ACRM. Each interdisciplinary special interest and networking group is a unique community where like-minded yet specialized health care and research colleagues collaborate to improve lives.

ACRM has over 20 community groups, each with their own task forces. No matter your research or clinical interests, you’ll find a place here. Our community groups and task forces meet regularly throughout the year, as well as during the Annual Conference. Please reach out to the chair or co-chairs of the group you’re interested in for more information about that group’s meetings, or check out the Online Program for group meetings occurring during the Annual Conference.
