Meet Your NACCU Volunteers: Deborah Davis
This is the latest installment of the NACCU series highlighting our association volunteers. NACCU provides programs and services to our members, many which would not be possible without the dedication and commitment of our volunteer leaders. Volunteers, whether they are a committee member, a Board member, or an onsite volunteer at a conference, are all important in making NACCU volunteer-driven programs an exceptional experience for our card industry peers.

What is your favo(u)rite memory from your own student days?
Working in a campus office! Ms. Taylor (my supervisor) was so nice and patient with me as I was learning how to work in an office setting. She taught the basics of providing support for our faculty - making copies, sorting their mail, directing visitors, and answering the phones. She demonstrated how important it was to get things correct and to also own when I made a mistake. Plus, she allowed time needed for studying if we weren't too busy. I also stored my stuff in her garage over the summer - my parents were extremely happy about this! I worked with Ms. Taylor from my second year until I graduated.
What is one thing that would surprise people about you?
I like to cook!
What is your new year's resolution for 2019?
I did not make any 2019 resolutions!
