Volunteer Call!

The IAP2 Wild Rose Board needs several volunteers throughout Alberta to be a part several committees including Outreach, Communications, Professional Development/Training and the Signature Event.

Volunteering on committees is a great opportunity to network with other P2 practitioners, help shape the presence of IAP2 Wild Rose and have a lot of fun. There is also an annual Board/Committee Social for volunteers to get together and celebrate the year's successes.
