Community Reaction Panel 


Welcome to the Community Reaction Panel

Welcome to the PKD Foundation volunteer team! We are excited to have you on our community Reaction Panel.

The Community Reaction Panel meets quarterly throughout the year. Between meetings, we will use Message Boards to share information securely with our panel members for review and comment. To comment, you can create an account or you can post as a guest. If you post as a guest, you will be asked to enter your name.

A few next steps for you as a new PKDF volunteer:

  • If you have not had the chance to watch Welcome to the PKDF – Information for PKDF Volunteers, please set aside about 20 minutes to watch this training video.  
  • It is a great idea to bookmark our Volunteer Resource pages for quick and easy access. These resource pages are your go to place for information. 
  • Join us on Facebook!  PKD Volunteer Team Facebook closed group page is a great way to connect with all our volunteers, share your ideas, successes and receive news and information from staff. PKD Volunteer Team is for official PKD Foundation volunteers only. 

A few ways that you will be receiving information… 

Volunteer Connection Calls 

It is important to us that our volunteers are in the know and up to date on what is going on at the PKDF. Volunteer Connection calls are held 3 times per year and the purpose of these meetings is to provide the latest information from each department. You will receive information about these calls via email and information will also be posted on the Volunteer Resource home page. These calls are recorded, and the recordings are posted as well for reference.  

Volunteer News 

The Volunteer News is an electronic newsletter that you will receive every month. They are usually sent out the last week of the month with updates and information about what is coming up the following month. These emails will be delivered to your personal email address.  

Hot Sheets! 

Hot Sheets are emails sent out by PKDF staff members that include timely information or updates. These emails are typically sent to your volunteer email address. Please check your volunteer email 2-3 times per week.
