JOIN VPPPA 

 

Join A Committee

Volunteer your time and shape the future of the association! The National Board of Directors relies on the activities of VPPPA’s various committees to continue moving the association forward and to help meet the association’s goals and objectives. VPPPA is always looking for enthusiastic safety and health professionals who can facilitate the improvement and growth of the association, advocate for the safety and health community, share innovative ideas and provide guidance and strategy on educational opportunities relevant to our members.

As a member of a committee, you will take part in a monthly conference call with the other committee members. The requirements to be on a committee are simple: You must be employed at a VPPPA member site in good standing and you must attend scheduled conference calls. The calls will discuss upcoming events and opportunities taking place within your committee and the members will explore ways to help advance the association. Express your interest in a committee by completing the committee interest form, or by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots.
