How can I get involved in your local community?
There is currently a real need for professionals with finance skills to volunteer in their local community.
ACT members have unique skills and financial knowledge, which would be a great asset to any school, club, association or society. Your skills could play an important part in the effectiveness of the objectives and standards of the not-for-profit institution you volunteer in.
