GET INVOLVED - Volunteer

Why volunteer?
Getting involved through volunteering is not just an item on a resume –
it’s an essential part of the success of any aspiring professional.
The benefits for the volunteer reach far and wide
and provide the individual with the opportunity to give back,
develop skills, get energized by getting out of the “daily routine”, and
be part of something that has meaning and is rewarding and fulfilling.

Benefits such as:

  1. Developing and sharpening skills in areas such as meeting facilitation; public speaking; leadership; team dynamics; time-management; customer service; critical thinking and problem solving; financial planning and budgeting; project planning and management; and goal setting.
  2. Developing incredible networking associations; people you can call on for advice and insights.
  3. Strengthening your personal professional vision by exploring opportunities and expanding your horizons.
  4. Leverage your specialized skills and talents to strengthen the infrastructure of the organization ensuring it can sustain and successfully achieve its mission.

In closing, one more reason to volunteer besides building skills and enhancing your professional career path; there are no training workshop fees or college education costs required for this learning opportunity, just a commitment of time and energy and you are on your way! We have filled most of the committee vacancies, however, below are the volunteer opportunities that are still available. If you are interested, contact President, Theresa Webb, at
