Volunteer Opportunities with the IIA
Our chapter activities are volunteer-powered! Volunteering is a great way to contribute to both your personal and chapter’s success - it connects you to others in your profession, expands your personal network, and provides development opportunities in skills such as project management and leadership.  Many volunteer positions only require an hour or two each month, and some can be broken down into smaller tasks requiring even less!  If you can spare an hour per month, please consider volunteering!

 

This month we’re spotlighting two opportunities under our Academic Relations function: University Liaisons and Presentations Judge.

 

Our VP-Academic Relations has developed an initiative to expand our outreach to area students.  The University Liaison volunteer role will network with faculty and students at Houston-area schools to expand our academic initiatives.  If you are an alumnus of one of the following universities and would like to learn more about working with your alma mater, please contact us!

·         Houston Baptist University

·         Prairie View A&M University

·         Rice University

·         Texas Southern University

·         University of Houston Downtown

We’ve also received dates for this semester’s UH Presentations Judge opportunities.  Each slot requires approximately 3 hours of time and 4-5 judges are typically needed for each.  Please contact Dr. Michael Newman directly at michaeln@uh.edu and copy membership@houstoniia.org so that we can record and recognize your volunteer efforts.  Below are the scheduled dates and times:
