Volunteers and Awards


Those who can, do. Those who can do more, volunteer.


​ABC has depended on volunteers for most of its existence and would not be where it is today without them. It is those in the profession that have a desire to give back that have made ABC a successful organization that continues to pursue a commitment to high standards, professionalism, education, excellence and advancement. ABC has over 130 volunteers, including its board of directors, that spend countless hours of their own time on various teams and committees to assist ABC staff in such tasks as conducting exams, reviewing and revising exam questions and content, reviewing accreditation standards and survey processes and determining current and appropriate policies and programs, to name a few. In fact, almost all programs and initiatives at ABC involve the work of volunteers. ABC feels that it is important for those within the profession to play a large role in how the organization is run and contribute their knowledge and expertise to helping ABC best serve the O&P profession. ABC has come a long way, but we couldn't have done it without our amazing volunteers!
