Volunteer with APEGA

APEGA - Local Branches

Branch Executive Committee (2024)


The Opportunity

APEGA is seeking applications for professional members and members-in-training to serve as volunteers on APEGA’s 10 local branch executive committees. These member-driven committees function as a conduit between APEGA’s Council, staff and the membership. Not only is it a great way to get a better understanding of APEGA’s role and regulatory responsibilities, it’s also fun! From locally-relevant workshops and lectures, to running engagement events like golf tournaments, participating on your local branch is a great way to get to know other professionals in your region and expand your network.


The Impact

APEGA’s local branch executive committees form an integral part of APEGA operations. Volunteers on these committees have an opportunity to bring the perspective of local membership to APEGA and to serve as ambassadors for the association. By serving on your local branch executive, you can help enhance the profile of the professions in your community, make the association aware of local concerns and successes, and advance APEGA’s strategic initiatives at the local level.


Time Commitment

Committees meeting 10 times per year, with some work required outside of meetings. Total commitment of approximately 2 – 10 hours per month.
