Help create a vibrant MS network in your community. The Chapter is seeking new self-help group leaders to start and lead affiliated MS self-help groups throughout the Chapter area.

    Volunteer Training Conferences

    Join the Movement & Engage Your Community:
    Annual Volunteer Training Conference

    Would you like to increase public awareness about MS?
    Would you like to create information and awareness events in your community?
    If you answered YES, then this training is for you!

    Contact us to complete a pre-screening and join others who want to make a difference in their community. During the training you will learn how to set up and host an information table or awareness event.  You will learn how easy it is to plan a social or education activity for people affected by MS.  During our brainstorming session, you will begin developing a plan to implement what you have learned. 

    We have the cause. You have the effect.

    Because MS affects more than just the individual diagnosed, our programs welcome friends and family members unaccompanied by a person with MS.

    Our programs often fill up quickly. While we fully understand you may need to cancel for various reasons, we ask that you let us know in advance if you cannot attend a program you’ve registered for whenever possible. This will help reduce our costs and enable people who may be on a waiting list to have the opportunity to join the program.

    Eligibility: Must be 18 years
