How do I make sure I’m opted in to AIChE’s Volunteer Pool?

Being part of AIChE's Volunteer Pool means that you are interested in learning about future volunteer opportunities available through AIChE Engage.

If you’re not already, opting in is easy: with one click, you are added to AIChE Engage Volunteer Pool. This means that when new opportunities come up, you'll be the first to learn about new opportunities that match your qualifications and interests.

How do I opt out of the AIChE’s Volunteer Pool?

Once opted in, you can of course suspend your opt-in request at any time. Just set the Invite me to volunteer when opportunities match my expertise? toggle from 'Yes to 'No' on your volunteer profile to no longer receive invitations.

What are volunteer points? How do I earn them and what do they get me?

Volunteer points are earned for every volunteer opportunity that you participate in through Volunteer Central. The number of points given per opportunity is based on the amount of time expected for the role to take and the experience level needed of the volunteer. The more time or experience level required the more points an opportunity is worth. The points earn you digital badges on your member profile, publicly recognizing your contributions to AIChE. The more points you earn the more digital badges you will receive.

What is the purpose of my volunteer profile?

Completing your Volunteer Profile profile will help AIChE know what kind of volunteer opportunities you are interested in and qualified for, and help us match you with these volunteer opportunities in the future.
