Get Involved

Contribute and learn as a volunteer!

Our volunteers make it happen!

Our dedicated volunteers are what make our organization posssible. They help us in so many ways ways to keep your AMA Pittsburgh chapter running. Our volunteers come from a variety of roles, organizations and career stages, bringing with them different skills, perspectives, attitudes and experiences that ultimately help our chapter be better.

 

Demonstrate your expertise, build credibility, work directly with hiring managers and high-potential candidates.

Getting involved as a volunteer can open doors for you. The more you participate, the more you gain. And we have volunteer roles at all levels of commitment from periodic to ongoing.

 

Areas where you can contribute and learn

Committee involvement usually requires 1-3 hours a week (but can be less or more as your need, interest and availability dictate), and we are happy to work with you directly to identify or even create just the right role and level of involvement.

Committees give each member volunteer a forum to demonstrate their individual talents and skills, learn new skills, and lend a hand where they can add the most value.

There’s something for everyone, and we’ll make room on any committee for you. Just let us know what you want to learn, practice, or lead and we’ll go from there!
