Volunteering

Volunteers play an important role in the mission and vision of APIC. We have many opportunities to volunteer whether you are looking for a long-term opportunity or a short-term project.

Volunteers also are eligible to receive Infection Prevention Units (IPUs) which are used to recertify for the CIC credential. You may earn five (5) IPUs per term per role when you participate on a local, state, national, or international level as a committee member or position of voluntary leadership. For more information, please visit cbic.org.

APIC welcomes you to become involved. If you have questions about these opportunities, contact volunteer@apic.org.
