Volunteer Log

As a volunteer, it's important that you log the hours you spend volunteering for APEGA committees and programs in your Member Self-Service Centre account. APEGA use this information to generate monthly and annual reports for program planning, budgeting, and statistical information. It also enables APEGA to identify the full volunteer support of our Members, and it enables us to recognize and celebrate your contributions.

Volunteer Code of Conduct

When you volunteer with APEGA, you are expected to be familiar with and follow the Volunteer Code of Conduct while representing APEGA. This code applies to all volunteer activities, including  councils, boards, committees, and APEGA events.
