Ask seven different Chapter volunteers and you will probably get seven different answers.
I won’t try to speak for others but I can tell you why I volunteer.
For me, volunteering is part of how I want to live my life. I believe that I have a responsibility to give a segment of my time, talent, and treasure in the pursuit of leaving this world a little better than how I found it. Serving on our Chapter Board has allowed me to volunteer my time and my talent. Two birds, one stone…I love it when that happens.
As a Chapter volunteer I have made many friends, discovered new business opportunities, and stayed current on trends in our talent development community. I have had the opportunity to dust off some old skills, learn some new ones, and think about leadership a little differently. Volunteering for our Chapter has not only allowed me to be a part of our professional community, it has allowed me the opportunity to work with others to shape it.
Now you know why I volunteer. How about you?
Thanks for reading!
