Volunteers are the lifeblood of the CQI. Find out how you can support the quality profession, shape its future and learn from your peers.

The CQI relies on the dedication of people who give their time to help run boards, committees and community groups. These volunteers do vital work in supporting other quality professionals and ensuring the CQI remains a strong, powerful voice.

CQI volunteers don't just help the CQI and the quality industry, they also learn from each other, broaden their contacts and enhance their career prospects.

We're always on the look out for new volunteers and there are plenty of opportunities for anyone who wants to get involved, whether it be in helping to decide how things are run and shaping the future of the profession, or building a network of fellow professionals in your industry or local area.
