Yes. It is Project Management Institute Policy that you must be a member to volunteer. There are a few exceptions for very time – limited roles such as volunteering for a partial or full day at a conference, however those are rare.
At PMI-SAC, all volunteers complete and sign a volunteer agreement which outlines PMI-SAC’s Code of Conduct, and expectations for both PMI-SAC and volunteers. It protects the interests of both parties.
The current chapter membership fee is only $40.00 per year, and $30.00 per year for students. Membership provides you with

Yes. While you will commit to volunteering with one team, there are opportunities to collaborate with other teams in the chapter to work on special projects, and volunteer at events, and conferences. Also, once your volunteer term ends, you can apply to volunteer in a different role with another team.
Our goal is to provide you with opportunities that enhance your volunteer experience.
That will depend on your role, and the time you have for volunteering.
As a volunteer, you will have the opportunity to further develop your skills, build a network, and have a hand in helping PMISAC deliver valued programs and services to our community of members.
For example, volunteers get involved by planning and executing projects and events, they coordinate and launch campaigns; they help us improve by developing new processes and tools; and they network and collaborate with other teams, members, and sponsors.
All volunteers are invited to attend a PMISAC onboarding/orientation session to introduce them to the chapter, and the people, and to learn about the portfolio teams and how they work together. The sessions are delivered throughout the year by the Volunteer Management portfolio team based on volunteer recruitment timing and demand.
Portfolio/team level volunteer training and orientation is provided by the Vice President and members of the portfolio/team.
