How do I get Involved
There are 3 alternative and complementary starting points.
1. You can create a profile on our online Volunteer Relationship Management System at https://vrms.pmi.org and indicate what kinds of volunteer positions you are interested in. You will get automatic emails whenever positions matching your interests are advertised.
2. You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and indicate your area of interest and availability.
3. Speak with an elected officer or volunteer leader with whom you would like to work.
Types of Volunteer Positions
Positions have been available in the following areas:
charged with the task of recruiting new members to the chapter ensuring that existing members are aware of the benefits of association and the direction of the Chapter’s governance
Programmes & Events
responsible for the planning and execution of Chapter meetings and events throughout the year.
Marketing and Public Relations
supports the promotion and advertising of the Chapter’s brand and offerings (whether in the form of training courses and/or merchandise)
manages the planning and execution of the training of PM professionals through developed courses
seek to find and match interested persons to volunteer opportunities within the chapter in the hope to encourage assimilation into the Chapter
assists with the technological infrastructure & development needs of the Chapter
You don’t need to be a member to volunteer. We recognize that some persons are just getting their feet wet in the profession, and it is quite normal for volunteers to rapidly transition to members and then ascend up the leadership ranks within the Chapter. The senior leadership positions are usually offered to members first, and particularly PMPs, but there are almost always many volunteer positions available for less senior persons.
