PCMA Volunteer Opportunities


PCMA Headquarters volunteer appointments are made by the PCMA Chair-Elect. Terms officially begin January 8, 2017 and end during PCMA Convening Leaders of the following year.  Volunteer appointments are made based on area of expertise, indication of skills and strengths, past participation as a volunteer and the needs of PCMA.  Every effort will be made to make use of your time and talents in a way that will be meaningful to you and beneficial to PCMA.  Before completing an interest form, please review the charge and time commitment as they vary by committee.  

  • The Education Conference Content Committee (ECCC) will begin activities in September of 2016. If interested in serving on this committee you must complete your volunteer interest form no later than August 17.

Please note: Committee and task force terms are for one year only and do not automatically renew. If you are currently serving on a committee or task force and would like to serve again, you must submit a Call for Volunteers form.
