Looking to get involved? Want to contribute to the success of your profession?
You are in the right place!
FPA’s volunteer structure enables a great number of members to contribute to FPA and the profession in meaningful ways that fit their life/business. Whether it is a short, one-time commitment, or a long-term project/position – FPA welcomes the skills, talents and passions of all our members.
We seek to engage with a wide number of volunteers in varying capacities through this program.
In the coming months we will be rolling out a comprehensive program that includes volunteer opportunities of all kinds, application forms, success stories from current initiatives, and more.
