The Alliance has a mighty A-Team of over 100 amazing volunteers including hospital, donation and transplantation professionals who give their time, service, and expertise to help us achieve our mission of providing engaged learning and collaborative leadership for the donation and transplantation community. Since its inception, the Alliance A-Team has grown to involve the 16 specific councils and workgroups listed below. The Alliance is tremendously proud and grateful for our many expert volunteers from the donation and transplantation community.

Volunteer opportunities are announced through The Alliance communications, sometimes as stand alone announcements, part of The Alliance newsletter, or included with webinar announcements.
