Build Your Network By Getting Involved


Our incredible volunteers help to make PGGNE a forum for exceptional educational programming, mentorship and networking. If you haven't volunteered in the past, we encourage you to take a moment and review our volunteer opportunities. Volunteering is a great way to increase the value and enjoyment you receive from your PGGNE membership. PGGNE volunteers also gain invaluable leadership experience, as well as networking connections in the industry.


There are a variety of roles to fit any commitment level - from short-term to long-term, and even just helping out at an event during the year. If you have questions about the time commitment for a particular event, or you want to learn more, contact the Board member listed below. We are happy to work with you to help you figure out which position might work best for you!
