Make a Difference—Be a Volunteer!

Participating as a RPI volunteer is a rewarding and enjoyable experience. Whether it is through ongoing committee service or a one-time commitment, volunteer support enables RPI to deliver its mission to enhance organizational performance through workforce recognition. There is a real sense of camaraderie among RPI volunteers, and the generosity of our member-leaders is impressive.

All volunteers must hold current memberships with Recognition Professionals International. The majority of team meetings are held via conference call. As a RPI Action Team volunteer-member, you will be expected to attend Action Team meetings and to promptly respond to requests from your Action Team Chairperson, the RPI office, and fellow Action Team Volunteer-Members. The goals of each of RPI Action Team and task forces are based on directives set forth by the RPI Board of Directors.
