Get involved

Are you passionate about meeting other professionals, improving existing skills and learning new ones, developing your career, and helping ALARM flourish?

We offer many opportunities to get involved in ALARM, which is run for members, by members. Join our member teams who advise on sector specific content; oversee quality control of our outputs; organise events and webinars; lead on technical publications; or become a Board Director and shape the future of the association.

Share your ideas 

We provide our members with outstanding support to achieve professional excellence. To ensure we continue delivering first class educational and informative content, we welcome suggestions from members. Your suggestions will help scope future outputs including articles, publications, and event sessions. 


Ad hoc opportunities

If you are available for a limited time only or have reduced capacity, just want to dip your toe in the water or just want to focus on one sector or one area of expertise or interest, here are some ad hoc opportunities that might work for you.

  • Join a working group to develop a technical guide or report. Look in on a brainstorming session, help write a section, contribute a case study, or proofread content. Typically working groups meet once a month over a three month period, with actions assigned after each meeting.
  • Write a web article. Web articles are 500 to 800 words and highlight the latest news, trends and developments in sectors and work areas, and across member organisations. Or introduce yourself to the membership in our Meet the Member feature.
  • Write a stronger article. stronger is our quarterly journal featuring long form printed content. Articles range from 1,000 to 2,200 words and include practitioner case studies and best practice articles. You may want to write one of our regular features: How To, or Smart Guide. Or put yourself forward as our Member Profile.
  • Present a virtual or in-person session. Speakers usually present for 30 to 40 minutes with ten to 20 minutes for questions and discussions. Virtual sector specific sessions take place every Thursday lunchtime and we run three major in-person conferences a year.

If you have a story to tell or case study to share, do get in touch with the ALARM Office.
