Volunteer with FPA of Puget Sound

We want your expertise! Sign-up as a FPA of Puget Sound Committee Volunteer!

FPA of Puget Sound’s goal is to explore ‘cutting-edge’ practices…so participating in our committees is more than just a volunteer activity, it’s an education!  We also hope to operate with fewer face-to-face meetings, and using technology to link us and allow broader participation.  If you’re interested in participating on a FPA of Puget Sound committee, please contact us at [email protected].
