ISPI has volunteer opportunities. Volunteers can expand their network of contacts as they interact with other performance improvement professionals. In these uncertain economic times it is more important than ever to have as many professional connections as possible. Express your interest in volunteering today! You'll be glad you did!
The purpose of the ISPI Volunteer Network is to link ISPI members with volunteer opportunities within ISPI. ISPI volunteers have the opportunity to:
- Use and expand their professional skills and knowledge.
- Build relationships within the professional community.
- Strengthen the field by strengthening the organization which best represents the field.
To volunteer, please review the descriptions of ISPI Committees and Task Forces and then complete the Volunteer Form. We have openings on committees throughout the year.
