Get Involved

Ask any SF IABC board member or volunteer about their experience with the chapter, and they’ll tell you that the more passionate you are about your volunteer role, the greater the benefits.

We offer a range of opportunities where you can enhance existing expertise or gain new skills – while expanding your network and developing leadership and management skills.

Chapter Leadership Opportunities

Along with the formal positions listed, all committees (which we call portfolios) have additional opportunities available. Most positions require a 4-6 hour time commitment per month.

You must be a member to hold a board position, but non-members can participate as a volunteer.

Interested? Contact Past President, Kamna Narain, to discuss the right fit for you.
