Volunteer Opportunities

It's easy to volunteer with your local chapter. We have standing committees that are always looking for help. 

There are several levels of volunteerism within our chapter: 

  • Volunteers are always needed to staff standing and ad-hoc committees.
  • Board members are elected into office and serve a two-year term. The Board consists of a President, 2 Trustees, and the following VPs: Certifications, Finance, Marketing and Communications, Membership, Outreach, Professional Development, and Technology & Business Services.
  • Directors have leadership responsibilities within specific areas of the chapter. The Board appoints directors. There are directors working in each of the functional areas mentioned above.

Check out the Chapter Volunteer Roadmap for expectations and benefits for each volunteer level.
