Is volunteering in member networks still in decline?

Is volunteering in member networks still in decline?

In our triennial International Benchmarking Survey in 2009, we found that volunteering in member networks was suffering a decline. 61% of professional bodies said that volunteering in their branches and special interest groups had either stayed the same or declined.

Will this trend continue in 2012 as professionals become more ‘time-poor’ from the recessions, or will we see a reversal as professionals try to strengthen their CVs and make more of networking opportunities?

The only way to find out is by completing our upcoming 2012 survey this autumn. Every organisation that responds will receive a detailed benchmarking report free of charge.

The data you provide will give an insight into the long term trends in the professional body sector that cannot be found anywhere else.
