Be a Volunteer!

IGSI's volunteer coordinate, Jeanne B., at the Irish Fair, 2021IGSI is a totally volunteer organization. And we appreciate the time and talent of those members who regularly help in the many projects and activities of the Society. Yet there are always new projects and committees needing helpers and technology has allowed everyone to help whether they live in Walla Walla, Tampa, Boston or even good old Minnesota! Every one of us has apparent and hidden talents and skills, many of which will benefit the growth of IGSI. Without your help, that won't happen. Please give a little time and help us keep IGSI strong.
 
No matter where you live, what you like to do, the amount of time you can spare, or how much responsibility you want to take, it's likely we can find something that needs doing that fits you.
