Get Involved NEW (2)

GSA is enriched by the breadth of members’ experiences and perspectives. There are numerous ways to get involved with GSA throughout your career. Time commitments vary from a few weeks to a full year.  

Mentoring

Develop a mentoring relationship to learn useful insights and develop a support system as a mentee or to share knowledge and contribute to the future of gerontology as a mentor. GSA’s online tool, Mentor Match, which helps you find a mentor or mentee using the criteria that you find important for that individual.

Annual Scientific Meeting Volunteer

This is an opportunity for members to attend the meeting and contribute their time to GSA while networking with friends and colleagues. In exchange for eight hours of volunteer support, GSA will provide a complimentary full meeting registration. There are a limited number of volunteer positions. Applications are available on a first come, first served basis to GSA ESPO members first. Information becomes available every July on the GSA website.

GSA Connect

GSA needs volunteers to help us keep GSA Connect a vibrant and thriving member  community. Volunteers will be asked to start discussions and reply to discussions to keep conversations moving and interesting. Discussion topics can include new resources, questions about career development, research assistance, and more. Volunteers are asked to post or reply to a discussion at minimum of six times per year.

GSA Journal Peer Reviewers

To serve as a peer reviewer, go to the specific journal submission site, create an account, and enter your area(s) of expertise via keywords. Your expertise areas will be used by the editors when identifying reviewers for submitted manuscripts. If selected as a potential reviewer, you will receive an invitation to review from the journal’s editorial office.

Opportunities for new/novice reviewers: for detailed information, review the sections, “Opportunities for New Reviewers/Mentors” in the journals’ Instructions to Authors.

Annual Scientific Meeting Abstract Peer Reviewer

The abstract peer-review process is an important step in the development of a strong program for the Annual Scientific Meeting. Reviewers are asked to select a GSA section and session codes (categories) of abstracts to review. Each reviewer will receive approximately 20 abstracts to review, score, and provide feedback. Abstract reviews are completed online and due within two weeks of being assigned. The abstract review period is end of March through early April.

Members are recruited at the end of February every year. For more information, contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
