THE POWER OF VOLUNTEERING
• Volunteers help us introduce children to the wonders of science and math, and university students to their future professional community. • Volunteers give our professions a human face, putting the self in self-regulation. • Volunteers develop their own careers and knowledge, and learn new skills. • Volunteers elected to Council provide leadership and governance to the entire organization. There really is something for everyone. We post from 150 to 200 volunteer positions a year. At any given time, from 1,500 to 1,750 volunteers are on our volunteer roster.
Sometimes our members support us by making a series of short-term commitments. For example, they are judges for APEGA Science Olympics, or resumé advisors for university students. Other times, they’re into the volunteering scene for a longer term. Maybe they’re semi-regular presenters or branch executive members. Volunteers also bring career wisdom and experience to major regulatory functions, committing to appointments as registration examiners, investigative committee members, or members of other statutory bodies. Whatever roles they’re selected for, members are critical to the success of their professions and their association. We couldn’t do it without them. • Volunteers ensure what we do is relevant, accurately reflecting the needs and expertise of our professions and the industries they represent.
