Volunteer recognition

All volunteers are entitled to wear one of our specially commissioned silver volunteer recognition pins

Created in 2012, silver volunteer recognition pins are a way of recognising the IFoA volunteers who get involved in supporting the profession.  Gold recognition pins are worn by IFoA Council members.

Wear your pin and be a Volunteer Ambassador

By wearing your pin to an IFoA meeting or event other members can identify you as an IFoA volunteer and ask for your views on what it is like to be involved.

How to request a silver volunteer recognition pin

Anyone who is an IFoA volunteer and would like to receive a pin should speak to their key Executive staff contact or contact Debbie Atkins.

Each year we host a number of volunteer recognition receptions around the globe to say thank you to our volunteers

Volunteers will be notified of upcoming receptions in their area. Details also appear on the events calendar and in newsletters. Since July 2018, receptions have taken place in locations such as Beijing, Cape Town, Chicago, Edinburgh, Hong Kong, Liverpool, London, Singapore, Thailand and Toronto. 

To find out more, speak to your key IFoA Executive contact, or contact Debbie Atkins.
