The IEEE Photonics Society provides its members with professional growth opportunities, publishes journals, organizes conferences and supports local chapter and student activities globally. It has various councils and outreach programs seeking volunteer participation. Volunteers with leadership and organizational skills are needed to help impact the future success of the organization. 

Volunteering allows professional members to create connections with peers with the same technical interests and share collaboratively. Volunteering also allows students to get involved with new opportunities and develop technical, social, and academic skills that they may not learn in a classroom or lab environment. 

If you have an interest in volunteering, this section includes volunteer resources and descriptions on how you can get involved
