Why Volunteer?

Getting Involved Enhances Your Membership and Career!

Volunteers are the heart of NCURA. As a member-staff driven organization, the success of NCURA is a result of the time and commitment provided by our members who volunteer to support their colleagues and our professional staff by furthering the goals and the values of the organization. Many opportunities exist for getting involved in the organization at both the regional and national levels.

What do our volunteers receive in return? - the opportunity to help guide the future of NCURA, to establish a strong network of peers, to acquire new skills and experiences, and to help advance the field of research administration. Additional personal benefits include:

  • Career enhancement/advancement
  • Professional contacts
  • Personal growth/new knowledge
  • Additional experience
  • Sharing expertise
  • Personal achievement
  • Giving back to the organization
  • Recognition
  • Having fun!

Resolve to get involved for your colleagues and for your career!
