Acknowledging Members’ Volunteer Service

Back to Volunteer

​AHLA’s volunteers are essential to the health of our Association and we value members’ service. We want to take this opportunity to highlight and thank the many members who write, speak, and participate in AHLA. Check back often as new volunteers will be added frequently to these honor rolls. Members’ names will be listed as information is recorded in our database, with the most recent appearing at the top of each list. In the coming months, we also hope to add and showcase those members who mentor, recruit, act as peer reviewers, and others who contribute to the Association’s success.

For members interested in getting involved in AHLA, please visit to view available openings. Find a project that matches your skills, talents, and time. You will find it professionally rewarding, the Association will benefit from your expertise, and AHLA will continue to lead health law to excellence.
