Volunteer Manual and Orientation
As a global leader in self-regulation, PEO relies heavily on its volunteers. More than 1,000 professional engineers, engineering interns and non-engineers volunteer their time each year on behalf of the association through participation in governance and operations.
To help our volunteers be productive and to help make their volunteer experience enjoyable, we have developed a Volunteer Manual to support you in your new role as a PEO volunteer. This manual will provide you information about PEO’s regulatory role, its governance structure and its volunteer policies and procedures. There is also information on PEO’s recognition program and awards.
We always welcome suggestions to improve the manual. Please feel free to submit your comments to Fern Gonçalves, M.Ed., CHRL, Director, People Development, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
PEO, as a licensing body for a self-regulated profession, relies on members' voluntary participation to govern and manage its affairs. This is achieved through an organization of committees and ad hoc task forces. Committees are appointed by Council to address a continuing need and generally stand for several years. Task Forces have limited life-span and are appointed by Council or its Executive Committee, to study issues, develop recommendations, or oversee special initiatives.
