When asked what volunteering for the IFoA means, some of our volunteers said the following:
... a sense of contributing something that makes a difference outside my day ...
gaining a sense of belonging to a community ...
... putting back into the profession what it gave me.
In addition to the opportunities to develop personal and professional skills, volunteering can, in some instances, provide you with access to training
All our volunteers who offer to speak at our conferences are invited to participate in presentation skills training and are given the opportunity to receive valuable feedback on their skills.
