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 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.
