Volunteering with BRM Institute
BRM Institute is a mission and purpose-driven association that exists because of the passion and expertise of our global volunteers!
At our core, we believe when you share your knowledge, efforts, and work, you will get back more than you give. At a minimum, you will enrich the lives of those who benefit from your efforts. Volunteering and leading activities to further the BRM profession will build on your leadership skills and provide opportunities to help others succeed. Join the effort and become a BRM legend. One of the original visionaries forever remembered for the time and effort devoted to instilling BRM as a revered discipline, capability, and role across the globe.
We offer a variety of ways for the BRM community to get involved, from short-term volunteer projects to committee, council, and board service. With every new volunteer, our community grows more energized, more diverse and inclusive. We become better equipped to reach our common goals.
We welcome active Professional Members, from a variety of career levels and diverse backgrounds, to serve on our Leadership Boards, Councils, Committees, and for other short- and long-term roles.
