Did you know there are plenty of ways to get involved in the VPPPA?
Whether you want to participate on a committee, be featured (or nominate someone to be featured) on our Member Center page, or write for a VPPPA publication, there are plenty of opportunities to contribute to the association!
First things first... Are you a VPPPA member? Consider joining to receive membership benefits.
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.
There are committees that fit all schedules (approximately a two hour time commitment per month) and interests.
Attend/Host a Webinar
VPPPA offers regular webinar opportunities at either a low cost or for free. Topics range from a wide variety of current topics in the safety/health industry.
Write for the VPPPA
One of the best ways a member (or anyone) can get involved with VPPPA is to write for us! The VPPPA Blog page is updated every other Thursday with articles regarding new safety and/or health topics. We also have a quarterly magazine, The Leader, which covers the hottest topics in the safety and/or health industry, as well as topics that are of interest to anyone in the workforce. You can find more informaton about The Leader here - including the upcoming schedule of themes.
Contribute to the Member Center Page
Another simple way to get involved with VPPPA is to send us any membership updates for our Member Center page. Did you have a recent STAR site celebration, receive an award or recognition at your site, or another noteworthy achievement? Send us a picture of the event and we can post it on our Member Center page. We love hearing from our members and seeing their achievements - let us celebrate with you and update our website with your news! Another way to contribute to the Member Center page is to nominate someone to be the VPPPA Member of the Month.
