Volunteers are the lifeblood of the CQI. We rely on the dedication of members and non-members who give their time to help run the boards and committees which ensure the CQI's position as the leading voice for quality in the UK
There are a host of opportunities for anyone who wants to become more involved in planning the future and direction of the CQI. Whether you would like to have a say on how things are run, or want to help create a network of quality professionals for your region or industry, there are plenty of rewarding roles available.
To find out more about joining a committee or board, please email the CQI Membership Team: firstname.lastname@example.org
By becoming a CQI volunteer, you will play an important role in the future direction of our profession, as well as increasing your career prospects and broadening your contacts.
To help our volunteers stay informed, we have launched a monthly volunteer newsletter, which will be delivered directly to your email inbox, bringing you the latest news from the CQI and from across our worldwide network of boards, branches, regions and special interest groups (SIGs).
iQ is the monthly email newsletter delivered to the CQI’s network of volunteers. It contains the latest developments at the CQI, the key contacts in the industry and the most important events not to miss.
Each month one of our volunteers will explain what their position involves and why they do it. The newsletter includes an important round-up of developments across the CQI’s boards, branches, regions, SIGs and the Executive, not to mention new volunteer opportunities to help your professional development.
