Become a Volunteer

CAAM is the premier association for the profession of Ayurveda in California. Its main responsibilities are promoting, advancing and safeguarding the profession in California. 

CAAM owes its success to its passionate volunteers. Volunteers make up 100% of our team. Each of the Board Members and current volunteers have been personally touched by Ayurveda in their lives and have joined CAAM to give back to Ayurveda.

If you are an Ayurvedic student, health counselor, practitioner, or other interested party and you reside in California, please join us!

As a volunteer, you will…

●  Be an integral part of the spread of Ayurveda in the West

●  Contribute to shaping Ayurveda as a profession in California for future generations

●  Make friends in the Ayurvedic community with common interests

●  Learn new skills while exploring your areas of interest

●  Cultivate business contacts with people in the industry

●  Feel a sense of fulfillment when giving back to Ayurveda for all that you have received

Welcome!  YOU are in the right place!

Pressing Volunteer Needs

Marketing Committee

The Marketing Committee needs enthusiastic social media content producers and is looking for a person to manage our ongoing social media presence. In addition to social media, they are hoping to find volunteers who will support the writing and distribution of CAAM’s newsletter.

Membership Committee

As CAAM gears up for its relaunch, the Membership Committee needs volunteers ready to process the applications for membership. This may include emailing potential members about their status.


Administration is in need of people with skills in organizing, delegating, and filing. Who navigate searches well and have experience with Google platforms, for example, transferring data from its current locations into folders on the drive.
