Annual Call for Volunteers Begins Soon

Beginning this year, PAEA is changing the call for volunteer service on our councils and committees from summer to fall. This way, members can learn about openings during the Education Forum and have time to apply once they return home. The 2016 call will begin September 23 and remain open until November 19. Positions on all councils, and many committees, will be available.

A new engagement session will take place at this year’s Forum. On Thursday, November 12, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., council chairs, members, and staff advisors will provide information about the work they do and the position(s) they have available.

The timeline for the annual call for volunteer service is provided below. General questions about this process and volunteer service can be directed to LaToya Mason at
