Introducing the WOCN Society's Task Force Volunteer Form
The WOCN Society's new Task Force Volunteer Form is separate from our Annual Call for Volunteers, as the form allows members to volunteer at any time throughout the year for special projects. The Society is looking for passionate members to volunteer for projects involving content validation, peer review, pilot testing, and special task forces. The more volunteers we have, the more value we can offer to the membership at large.
