As a leading modern professional body, APM relies on the expertise and commitment of its volunteer community for the development and promotion of project and programme management. This includes the effective delivery of many wide ranging activities for the benefit of individuals, organisations and society including events, publications and product development.
In support of this activity, APM has published a community charter that sets out the key principles by which all those involved with APM work and collaborate together towards achieving our shared vision of a world in which all projects succeed.
APM currently holds the Investing in Volunteers Quality Standard. Achieving this quality accreditation publicly demonstrates APM’s commitment to volunteering and effective volunteer management.
There are a number of regular opportunities to be involved with voluntary work with APM:
- APM Branches
- Specific Interest Groups (SIGs)
- Writing for APM
- Corporate member liaison team
- Schools engagement - Inspiring the future
- Schools engagement - STEMNET
IPMA: Opportunities may arise from time to time for unpaid volunteers to assist APM’s involvement with the International Project Management Association. If you or someone you know is interested in this, please email Peter Van Duzer.
If you are interested in volunteering for a branch or a SIG please do contact the Volunteers' Manager.
