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.

Interested in volunteering for a committee or leadership position? Complete a Volunteer Information form, indicating your areas of interest and expertise, and send it to our Director of Volunteers. If you do not see an open volunteer oppportunity that interests you below, please note that Volunteer positions become available throughout the year, and we'll keep your form on file for future openings that match your qualifications.

Thanks in advance for your consideration. We look forward to hearing from you!
