Get Involved

Volunteers are the heart of NSPE and essential to advancing our mission. We need your expertise and welcome the diverse and unique perspectives of all members.

Why Volunteer?

  • Be connected – Volunteering at NSPE is a great opportunity to grow your professional network and connect with other leaders in the field.
  • Show Support – Give back to the engineering community and show your support for the work of your professional society.
  • Make an Impact – No matter how and where you choose to engage, your service will make a positive impact on the engineering community.
  • Volunteer on your own time – There are many opportunities to engage, whether you have a little or a lot of time to give.  

NSPE needs your knowledge, skills, and time to assist our organization in accomplishing the goals set forth in our strategic plan. Select an engagement opportunity that meets your needs and time considerations. Volunteer opportunities are organized into three categories, based upon level of engagement. Please be sure to review the engagement levels when making your choices.

Engagement Level 1 (Highest Engagement) – Standing Boards and Committees
Includes potential monthly virtual engagement. Most meetings held via video conference with active participation in between meetings. On average 2-3 hours a month. Terms may be up to three years.

Engagement Level 2 (Intermediate Engagement) – Ad Hoc Committees and Task Forces
Activities primarily include online correspondence and video conference meetings. On average 1-2 hours a month.

Engagement Level 3 (Lowest Engagement) – Ad Hoc Volunteer
Get engaged in activities on a project-by-project basis. These micro-engagements are short and focused, and primarily virtual.

Please note: Each year, we receive many requests from members eager to share their experience and knowledge by volunteering. While every effort will be made to place you in your desired engagement level, we may be unable to make a match due to the limited number of positions. Even if we are unable to place you for the coming year, we will keep your request on file for future opportunities. Appointments will be confirmed by mid-August.

Volunteer opportunities will be added as they become available. Please check back.
