Volunteer Opportunities

UMAPP has many committees that are run by volunteers. If you are interested in serving on a committee, please complete the volunteer form and send it to the UMAPP office.

Once it has been received, our volunteer coordinator will contact you.  

Committees typically meet 1-3 times per year, communicate via email and phone, and committee members are welcome to attend board meetings (committee chairs are requested to attend).

There are also other volunteer opportunities -- bite-sized commitments.   For example, help on a calling campaign to boost attendance at an upcoming event, or choose a one-hour time slot at the booth show to help with registration or name badge security.   We work around YOUR schedule!  Just let us know how you would like to be involved.
