Description:

The HRPA West Toronto Chapter needs you! Sharing your time, talent, and passion as a Chapter volunteer means more than just advancing your career or networking with leaders in your field. By joining us as volunteers, HRPA members gain the opportunity to make a real impact on the HR profession – and on the individuals working within it. Volunteer positions may also qualify for CPD hours. 

Volunteer for one of our Chapter Committees and give back to your local HR community. You do not need to have a lot of experience to contribute as a volunteer. In fact, volunteering provides an excellent opportunity to develop new skills and learn from your peers. All you need is a positive attitude, a willingness to contribute and learn in a team environment.  The time commitment will vary depending upon the task you are asked to execute.  

 

Please take a moment to review the Volunteer Code of Conduct as you will be asked to agree to it during the application process.  

Please review each of the Committee Roles and Responsibilities below before you apply to be a volunteer with the Chapter.  These descriptions will not be available on the application. You will be asked to click which committee position you are interested in when applying.  You may select more than one if interested in multiple roles. 

The volunteer term is from August 1, 2021 - July 31, 2022.
