Volunteer 

 

Call For Volunteers! 

Volunteers are an essential part of the ISACA organization.  ISACA members who volunteer their skills and time, take pride in knowing they play an important role in the continued success of our local Chapter.  A dedicated leadership is critical, but to really grow our Chapter, we need lots more help!

Typically people are reluctant to volunteer because they are afraid of making a commitment that may interfere with their work or personal time.  However, not every assignment requires a long commitment or a leadership role.  Some assignments are one-time and require as little as 1 or 2 hours. 

To volunteer, e-mail volunteer@isacany.org and let us know which of the following areas are of interest to you:
