      Volunteers are the foundation and strength of Project Management Institute Alaska Chapter (PMIAK). To ensure continued growth and future success of the Chapter, proper guidance needed to be developed to recruit, retain, and recognize Chapter volunteers. Volunteering provides chapter members with an opportunity to influence and promote the project management profession, and to contribute to development of the Chapter. The purpose of this project was to create a PMIAK Chapter Volunteer Handbook with efficient processes to assist leadership engaging with volunteers. The Volunteer Handbook provides Chapter leadership with information related to recruitment, retention and recognition with step-by-step guidance for using a Volunteer Relationship Management System (VRMS). Research for development of the handbook included a literature review, best practices of Volunteer Handbooks from other Chapters, and surveys and interviews with PMIAK Chapter leadership and active volunteers.
