Volunteering with POC is an enriching experience. Our association was built and thrives today on the commitment and dedication of its volunteers. 

You’ll benefit from networking with peers, making new friends, building your skill set, increasing your visibility, and boosting your confidence and credibility. You’ll also earn points towards your Silver, Gold or Platinum leaf status.

Once all of your completed online application forms have been received, the Nominating Committee and/or the Board of Directors will review them and you will be contacted. If you have any questions or need assistance, please email the Nominating Committee Chair at nominatingchair@organizersincanada.com
