Volunteer Opportunities



The ARHE Board of Directors is a mix of voted and appointed positions. Nominations and voting for open positions occur in early Spring with results announced during Collegiate Recovery Week in April. New Board Members assume their positions in June during the annual conference and typically serve for two years with the opportunity to be re-appointed or re-elected for one additional term. Please check out the Board of Directors page (https://collegiaterecovery.org/board-of-directors/) for current open positions. You may reach out to Ahmed Hosni at hosni.2@osu.edu to express interest in open positions or to inquire about the Nominations Committee.


The ARHE Advisory Council is a body of individuals within the field of collegiate recovery who support the work of the ARHE Board of Directors to advance the field of collegiate recovery. Launched in 2020, the Advisory Council was formed to act as the collective conscience of collegiate recovery staff and advises ARHE in important topics and decision making that impacts the whole field. The Advisory Council is largely made up of individuals nominated and voted upon by their peers in the Council. Nominations and voting occur once per year with new members taking their positions in April. You may reach out to Kristina Canfield at kristina.canfield@collegiaterecovery.org for ways to get involved with the Advisory Council and check out https://collegiaterecovery.org/advisorycouncil/ for more information.

It takes an entire team to make the Annual Conference the amazing event it is each year. We encourage any members of ARHE who have a love for event planning and logistics to get involved with the Conference Planning Committee. This committee typically begins meeting in September or October and meets through the final week of June. Meetings are scheduled weekly but fluctuate depending on the needs of the conference at any given point. Members of this committee are asked to serve on at least one subcommittee focused on an aspect of the conference (for example, networking, entertainment, etc.) and to volunteer their time at the conference as well. Registration fees for the conference may be waived for those dedicating their time to this committee. To express interest and get involved, please reach out to conference@collegiaterecovery.org.

Every June, ARHE hosts it’s Annual Conference and it takes dozens of volunteers to help keep the conference running smoothly. Volunteers are needed in various sessions, at the registration and information tables, helping in the exhibit hall, and assisting with the various programs that are a key part of the conference. A call for volunteers goes out each year starting in January with orientation sessions offered in the weeks prior to the conference. Questions about this opportunity may be directed to conference@collegiaterecovery.org.

A Collegiate Recovery Program (CRP) is a college or university-provided program that includes a supportive environment within the campus culture. CRPs reinforce the decision to engage in a lifestyle of recovery from addiction/substance use disorder. It is designed to provide an educational opportunity alongside recovery supports to ensure that students do not have to sacrifice one for the other.
