For a relatively small profession and organisation the LI plays a hugely positive role in shaping landscapes and liveable places. Our almost 1000 inspiring volunteers are the lifeblood of the LI, and help to make the organisation so positive and relevant. The time, dedication and enthusiasm that volunteers offer enables the LI to make its voice heard and exercise the influence it does. The dedication of our volunteers helps us better represent and serve our members, and in turn, volunteering helps our members develop vital knowledge and skills. Volunteering can create opportunities for members to develop their competency and knowledge in relevant areas, and thereby contribute to their CPD.
Every year members contribute over £1 million worth of time in voluntary work for the LI, as Board, Council and committee members; Chartership supervisors, mentors and examiners; and Awards judges – as well as working with branches, speaking in schools, representing the LI on working groups and contributing to policy and technical publications.
