IGSI is entirely a volunteer organization. We appreciate the time and talents of the many members who regularly help with the projects and activities of the Society. There is always a need for fresh energy and talents.
 
Many of our volunteers help from their homes. Whether you live in Walla Walla, Tampa, Boston, Canada, or even good old Minnesota, we welcome you on our team! Without your talents and skills, many of our goals for the Society can't happen. Please give a little time and help us keep IGSI strong, and you will connect with a wonderful group of people.
 
How to Volunteer
A few of the current volunteer opportunities are posted below. For more information contact the IGSI volunteer coordinator with a note as to what volunteer role would interest you. If you have expertise or talents to share in another area, let us know how you can help. We would love to have you join our volunteer team!
