volunteer opportunities

We have so many opportunities for volunteers this year and we welcome interested members to join us.  We are making our way through the list of interested volunteers and encourage any of you who may not have completed the volunteer interest form to take a few moments and do so.  The benefits gained from volunteering touch so many.  As a volunteer, you gain satisfaction and recognition for your service, you gain experience in working with other chapter members and you broaden your connections.  With your help, programs and initiatives, like the ones listed below, can be realized and completed, which benefits the receivers, the chapter, our region and ICF as a whole. If you have completed the volunteer interest form and have not heard from us, yet, you will be hearing from Volunteer Services, later in April.  You will learn more about Volunteer Services and the process that we are adopting, moving forward. It is our hope that this effectively serves you and the chapter.
