AFERM is a 100% volunteer-run organization. We invite our members to volunteer and share their knowledge and skills. We also welcome those who would like to give back to the profession. Volunteers participate in activities that take place in standing and ad-hoc committees, lead as a committee chair, or take on a leadership role. Volunteers also contribute with research, website and social media maintenance, logistics such as event planning, and communications and outreach projects.

President’s Welcome

Thank you for visiting the volunteer webpage.  As president of AFERM, I would like to extend a warm welcome to you as you consider volunteering with our organization.  Volunteering is another form of service, and that is a cornerstone in our organization.  All involved serve the practitioners of enterprise risk management in the federal government, and we couldn’t achieve all that we do without the help of those who serve as volunteers.

Our volunteers are a big part of the success of our organization and events.  And we are truly appreciative of the time and effort they put into AFERM. As you look though the volunteer information on our website, I wish you great success with our volunteering opportunities.

We look forward to hearing from you.  For additional information please contact our AFERM volunteer coordinator.
