The Student Forum Advisory Board (SFAB) is the governing arm for the ASA Student Forum, which provides resources for graduate and undergraduate sociology students, helps develop networks among student members, and facilitates student participation in ASA by encouraging professional development and service. SFAB members are elected by the ASA student membership.

SFAB seeks nominations for graduate and undergraduate student members.
