Volunteer Leaders & Committees

any volunteers lend their time and expertise to assist PRIMA staff and board members in carrying out the activities of the organization. This affords members greater opportunities for involvement and also helps board and staff members identify potential future leaders.  

 

Want to get involved? PRIMA looks for volunteers on an annual basis, beginning in April. Watch your email and the PRIMA website for more information.
