Become a WELD Volunteer

Photo of WELD volunteers at an eventWELD is powered by thousands of volunteer hours every year.  We need dozens of volunteers to help our organization operate as smoothly as possible. Chapters are run by steering committees primarily composed of volunteers.  WELD volunteers benefit by building new relationships, gaining exposure to executive level women, testing new leadership skills learned at our events and paying it forward.  Key volunteer areas include, but are not limited to: 

  • Programming
  • Membership
  • Corporate Relations
  • Marketing
  • Finance
  • Impact/Community Collaboration

Volunteers are needed to plan our annual Keynote and other events.  Day of event volunteer opportunities are also available for many of our events.
