Committees & Groups

Working together to promote healthy travel

ISTM offers three types of volunteer activities for Members to become active within the organisation, network with their colleagues and contribute to the field.


ISTM Committees support ISTM activities and projects. They are chartered and tasked by the Executive Board following established guidelines. Current ISTM Committees include The Continuing Professional Development Committee, The Examination Committee, The Liaison Committee, The Professional Education and Training Committee, and The Research and Awards Committee.
