The WOCN Society Needs Your Expertise

We are looking for members to volunteer for special projects. These projects include content validation, peer review, pilot testing, committees and special task forces.

We invite you to join our active and resourceful group. You may not consider yourself an expert or as having sufficient experience to be of service; however, the WOCN Society values your knowledge and encourages you to get involved!

Plus, if you are a current committee member, you can still volunteer to serve on a special project!
