I feel a great sense of personal satisfaction and achievement as a training and education professional; helping members and others to develop their professionalism and skill set within their industry. Designing the Mailpiece Design Consultant Certification, facilitating the National CMDSM and CMDSS Study Sessions and this year introducing the National Learning Event Webinars have all been very rewarding experiences for me.
The opportunity is here within MSMA for all members who want to contribute to participate and have affect on others. No matter what your specific talent may be, it can be used to better our organization while simultaneously developing your existing skills and gaining new ones. Volunteering is a great way to:
add experience and increase your professional skills that can be transferred to your job and your resume
be a part of our many industries; expand your professional network and make new friends
reflect and support a complete picture of you by showing real examples of your commitment, dedication and interests in the mailing industry
No matter what you volunteer to do within MSMA, you will be welcomed and supported as an “active” member. But be warned, volunteering will bring you an overwhelming sense of achievement, satisfaction and fulfillment! If this is the year you take your MSMA membership to a higher level and decide to volunteer, the first step is simple; to be one, ask me or any other National Board Member.
