Become a Volunteer

Our mission to become the world’s leading advocate for the discipline of Clinical Data Management is fuelled by our global network of enthusiastic and professional volunteers. In fact, all of our programmes and events are managed by committees and task forces that are made up of our volunteer SCDM members and led by a Chair and Co-Chairs.

If you would like to be a part of this thriving professional network, make a real impact on your industry and organisation, and contribute to the advancement of global clinical data management, become a volunteer today by joining one of the committees or task forces below.

To become a volunteer, simply follow these steps:

  • Choose the committee and a working group of your interest.
  • Sign in or create an account.
