Volunteering with APM – opportunities for everyone
Tuesday 7 June 2022
presented by Ewelina Kruk, APM Volunteers Steering Group (VSG)

What does volunteering mean to you?
Enlist, offer, present oneself, chip in, sign up. These are exactly what volunteering is: a fantastic opportunity to step into a role which you may not be able to do otherwise, meet people you would not have met otherwise, think and discuss things that you would not have discussed otherwise!
Volunteering is a land of firsts if you want it to be!
-If you think you do not have the experience, ignore that thought now
-If you think you have not been with the APM long enough, ignore that thought now
-If you have a passion for volunteering, do not ignore that thought
-If you have a passion for the profession, do not ignore that thought.
Ewelina talked about:
-How she presented herself, in order to chip in
-What her drivers and motivations were for volunteering
-How she has benefited from making the investment
-What opportunities are available to you and how you can get involved.
As part of this session, we highlighted the current volunteering opportunities open to APM members, to join a Specific Interest Group (SIG) or Branch committee. An opportunity that only comes around once a year, so don’t miss it!
