Volunteer Committee

The ISPA Volunteer Committee is a great way to get more involved with ISPA and build new connections. As part of the committee, you will be able to participate directly in ISPA's growth and success. Members have the opportunity to share their expertise in areas of interest and select topics of discussion and activities that work best for their schedules.

If you're interested in serving as a volunteer for ISPA, apply here until the applications close on November 1, 2019.  

Speaker Selection Task Force

The ISPA Speaker Selection Task Force is a volunteer committee of invited ISPA members who assist in the selection and training of education presenters at the ISPA Conference & Expo. Speaker Selection Task Force members analyze survey results data, review speaker applications submitted to ISPA, interview speaker applicants and make recommendations to the ISPA Board of Directors for topics and speakers to include in the ISPA Conference & Expo education program. After speaker selections have been made by the ISPA Board of Directors, task force members continue their role by working closely with selected speakers to educate them on the ISPA audience. This group is comprised of appointed individuals who have attended the ISPA Conference & Expo regularly within the previous five years and have a history of leadership within ISPA’s various volunteer committees.

Exhibitor Task Force

The ISPA Exhibitor Task Force is a committee of exhibitors that collaborate to share insights and provide feedback to continue to improve and evolve the Expo floor at the ISPA Conference & Expo. As a member of the Exhibitor Task Force, you are able to contribute to what we are able to accomplish now and for future events through monthly collaboration calls. The committee is selected in February of each year. If you have an interest in serving, please contact ispa@ispastaff.com.

ISPA Board Service

Each year, the Nominations Committee is tasked with evaluating the needs of the current board and proposing the names of members to fill the vacancies that occur in the set rotation of board members each year. The ISPA Nominations process is very thorough and has evolved over the years to identify high-level leadership qualities and attributes. Annually, an application is open for any eligible member interested in serving on the ISPA Board of Directors. From there, applicants go through a standard process which can include up to two interviews (conducted via video conferencing), review professional references and a personality assessment for each candidate. Candidates are selected for the slate of candidates, put before the ISPA membership for approval. A thorough orientation process is conducted before the new directors take office at the ISPA Conference & Expo.

The ISPA Board of Directors Application will be available for eligible members to apply on April 1, 2020. If you have any questions surrounding this process, please contact samantha.smith@ispastaff.com.
