Volunteer Opportunities

The UPPCC hopes that you will continue your commitment to excellence after becoming certified. Below are a few volunteer opportunities available to you as a certified individual, each of which will earn you credit towards recertification.

Think back to when you took your certification examination. Did you wonder where those exam questions came from? Who wrote them? How were they written? Examination questions for both the Certified Public Procurement Officer (CPPO) and Certified Professional Public Buyer (CPPB) are written by your peers. Public procurement professionals like yourself write and review all UPPCC examination questions. If you are interested in giving back to the certification you worked so hard to achieve, volunteer your time as an Item/Question Writer.

Other volunteer opportunities include:

  • Job Analysis Survey Participant
  • Job Analysis Standard Setting Panelist
  • Job Analysis Task Force Member
  • Job Analysis Test Specifications Task Force Member

Please complete the  UPPCC Volunteer Interest Survey and indicate your interest in volunteering and the specific volunteer activities for which you are interested. The UPPCC enlists current certificants in good standing to assist the organization from time to time and awards recertification credit for participation:

All currently certified individuals are contacted via email or letter prior to each face-to-face Item/Question Writing session to solicit participation. Session details vary as do credit awarded for participation.
