Get Involved

MATSOL members have the opportunity to support MATSOL's mission and further their professional experience by joining a MATSOL committee or task force, which are overseen by the MATSOL Board of Directors. 

  • A Committee is a group that oversees an ongoing activity in MATSOL. Length of service on a committee may vary, but we generally ask for a one-year commitment. 
  • A Task Force is a group the convenes for a limited amount of time to complete a specific project. The Task Force disbands when the project is completed. Length of service depends on the task to be completed.
  • SIG Steering Committee plans the activities and facilitates meetings of MATSOL Special Interest Groups (SIGs).
