As IPMS/USA transitions to a new membership and event management system (Wild Apricot) and we update our website, we need your help.  Do you have a background working with web apps or web content design? Are you a writer who can help us get the IPMS story across better on our website? The following is a list of positions we envision in support of the transition to Wild Apricot and on an ongoing basis, plus a few that are open in other roles.  IPMS/USA members who volunteer will receive the required supplemental training, and your membership will be complimentary during your tenure, but your biggest satisfaction will come from helping ensure the Society’s growth and continuation through the work you are doing. We look forward to hearing from you!
