Benefits of volunteering

Volunteering is a great way to give back to your profession and maximize the value of your membership investment. Here are some benefits of volunteering:

Be in the know: How often have you wondered about what's going on with the society, or is anyone really paying attention? ISSS volunteers are on the leading edge of conversations about issues affecting the society and system safety. Volunteers gain access to key decision-makers, and they often receive additional communication about the society's plans and activities.

Networking opportunities: Studies show that volunteers develop stronger relationships with their colleagues, which often leads to business referrals and future employment opportunities. By volunteering, you can develop new friendships and interact with your colleagues beyond the daily grind of work.

Develop leadership skills: Volunteering is a great way to develop leadership skills and grow professionally. Volunteers play a critical role in guiding ISSS. We have multiple opportunities to lead teams and manage projects.

Make a difference: Do you believe that system safety professionals play an essential role in protecting the public? If so, you can make a positive difference by helping ISSS provide better service to its members. Your active participation will help to influence the quality of the services offered and ensure that ISSS is positioned to advance the profession.

Have Fun: Yes, volunteers have fun! It is rewarding to see a project accomplished. ISSS members are good about celebrating success and toasting a job well done. ISSS members embrace the ethic of work hard, play hard.

International System Safety volunteer requirements, expectations, and eligibility.

All volunteers must hold current memberships with the International System Safety Society (ISSS). Most volunteer participation on working groups and taskforces will be held via teleconference. As an ISSS volunteer, we expect you to attend scheduled meetings and to promptly respond to requests from your chairperson, ISSS staff, and fellow volunteers. You will be responsible for completing tasks/projects that you volunteer to do. The ISSS Executive Council establishes the goals for the working groups and task forces.

After you submit your volunteer request, ISSS staff or the chairperson will contact you to confirm your volunteer appointment and put you in touch with your fellow volunteers.
