You want to volunteer but may only have limited time. You want to be an engaged leader but can’t make a big commitment. The National Association of Pediatrics (NAPNAP) understands, so we designed TeamPeds Volunteers just for you! As much as we strive to help you advance your career, we need your expertise to advance the profession and our organization. We value your expertise in child health and advanced practice nursing issues. You can make a difference through TeamPeds Volunteers.
Our TeamPeds Volunteers program gives you the opportunity to build your leadership skills and share your professional experience on the projects you want, when you want and why you want. You can choose projects that most interest you and work with your busy schedule. NAPNAP’s traditional, longer-term volunteer opportunities, like Executive Board and committee service, are still available if those fit your lifestyle.
How does it work?
Log into napnap.org and click on My Account to be connected to our member portal. In the top navigation line, click TeamPeds Volunteer and click on the arrow in the pull down menu to create or update your member profile to participate in the TeamPeds Volunteers program.
As we initiate new projects, our team will query the TeamPeds Volunteers database to determine which members have an interest in and necessary knowledge and experience to, for example, vet a position statement or conference abstract, be a liaison to an outside advisory group, share opinions on new initiatives, services or clinical projects or participate in interesting short-term projects essential to the operation and growth of the profession and NAPNAP.
What do you need to do?
After you update your member record to participate in TeamPeds Volunteers, be on the lookout for occasional emails about volunteer opportunities for upcoming projects. The more experiences you list in our database, the more often your skills will align with our project needs leading to emails from our team. We promise you won’t be flooded by spam and you are always free to accept or decline volunteer requests.
