Volunteer with IASA: Micro-volunteering

Micro-volunteering  

Micro-volunteering is volunteering that can be completed in a limited amount of time. Micro-volunteering is a critical component of IASA’s volunteer strategy, as it eliminates the time barrier which often prevents some members from being able to participate.  

IASA’s micro-volunteering activities allow for one-off interactions. It increases engagement by allowing volunteers to support our organization without committing to a regular volunteer schedule.  

We find that micro-volunteering with IASA often leads to long-term engagement, through our chapters or on a national committee.  

Examples of micro-volunteering opportunities with IASA include:  

  • Textbook authors and editors   
  • Pilot testers for educational offerings  
  • Knowledge resource volunteers  
  • Focus group participation  
  • Staffing the IASA booth at IASA Xchange™
  • Survey panel participants  
  • Other short-term projects 

To learn more about micro-volunteering opportunities with IASA, please the Volunteer Opportunities page or contact the Member Engagement Team for more information.

eLearning Content Review Micro-Volunteer Opportunity:  Subject Matter Experts review on-demand content in IASA’s eLearning Center within their areas of expertise, one to two years after content’s initial launch to the eLearning Center, to confirm educational content is still accurate and relevant.  CPE credit is available for first time content review (or for repeat reviews if the content has substantially changed since the first review).

IASA is actively seeking volunteers to support topic and speaker generation (beneficial to the insurance industry), as well as strategy development for the podcast offering.

This will be an ad-hoc “micro-volunteer opportunity,” meeting periodically to identify industry hot topics, crowdsource speakers, and strategize the episode schedule for new content and promotion of upcoming event education. Participation requirement is expected to be minimal and mostly independent.

If you have content expertise in a particular topic area, have a great network of industry colleagues presenting a wide variety of educational content, or have interest in supporting podcasts as an industry education opportunity, this opportunity is for you.
