YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE IN RECOVERY TO PARTICIPATE IN ASIR EVENTS OR ACTIVITIES UNLESS STATED OTHERWISE
There are no requirements for ASIR membership other than wanting to help people in recovery and people in general. Our aim is to foster a better understanding of recovery for those who don't identify as being in recovery so that the barriers and stereotypes associated with persons suffering from substance use disorders can be dismantled. We believe all people deserve a welcoming and supportive environment and we want to include any person that wishes to be our organization and mission to emphasize our commitment to this goal. Additionally, we accept members from all universities in the New Mexico area, such as CNM, NMSU, and New Mexico Highlands.
ASIR has several officer positions that have key organizational responsibilities - more information about our officers can be found in People. There are 2 types of officers: Chief Officers and Deputy Officers. Chief Officers are responsible for executive decisions within their respective areas. Deputy Officers act in support of Chief Officers and make executive decisions when the Chief Executive Officer is unavailable. All officers have an equal vote in legislative and internal matters. Anyone can serve as an officer in ASIR; however, 60% of the officers must identify as being in recovery.

As an ASIR Officer, you will receive valuable, modern experience in your role, which looks fantastic on your résumé. All ASIR Officers and members will be involved with its strategy and organizational structure and receive quantifiable data on organizational results that they can use to promote their future careers.
