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 NL community.

Think about the different functional teams such as: Programs, Outreach, Education, Communications. Talk to other volunteers or contact the Volunteers Team for ideas by sending an email to
