Frequently Asked Questions

How do I sign up?
It’s easy—just complete our volunteer opt-in form online or contact us.

Are there any restrictions or requirements to join?
Membership on certain committees may be limited by the Bylaws, Association policy, or the Committee Chair. The Association staff will assist you in determining whether there are committee vacancies.

How much time will volunteer service take?
You are able to control how much time you would like to spend - from as little as one hour for a specific task to a number of days over the course of one year. Most committees and task forces get together via mutually convenient conference/Zoom calls.

What if my time is limited?
No worries! There are many volunteer opportunities available from quick tasks that only require an hour, to longer projects that take around five hours a month. Work with the IADD Volunteers Coordinator to find the best fit for your schedule.
