-3) If you are new to the chapter, please attend a New Member Orientation Meeting (held monthly) - and also attend a chapter meeting or some other event.  That way you’ll learn a bit about how the chapter works, and you’ll have a chance to speak with other volunteers.

-5) If you aren’t sure how to proceed – then submit an application for General Opportunities through VEP and include the items suggested above.  You’ll be contacted within 2 weeks.

Q & A


If you are a new member


Experience suggests that new members first attend some chapter meetings and participate in chapter programs before volunteering.

Learning about the chapter and meeting other volunteers will help you find the best role and prepare for the time and responsibility you''ll take on.


What do you like to do? How do you want to develop? When and How much time do you plan for volunteering?


If you haven't created a "development plan" think about how experience as a volunteer might help.

Consider joining up with an Outreach activity and help the chapter give back to the NYC community.

Think about the different functional teams ... Programs... Outreach... Education... Communications... talk to other volunteers or contact the Volunteer Relations Team for ideas by sending an email to


If you are an experienced member


You might also consider helping other members through Mentoring (requires PMP certification plus 5 years of experience)

You might look for opportunities to develop leadership skills by serving as a team or chapter leader
