What would you say to someone who is considering volunteering with NACCU?
Volunteering is a wonderful opportunity to engage more fully in your organization…it is a member driven organization and the benefits of volunteering are both personally and professionally rewarding.
What impact has serving on the NACCU Board made on you, personally and professionally?
I have seen first-hand the depth of care, genuine concern, hard work, and quality leadership the Executive Director, NACCU Staff, other board members, corporate members, and fellow volunteers contribute to making NACCU a truly high-quality organization. Their efforts to stay true to the mission, vision, and values of NACCU are always at the forefront of each and every decision. I am truly humbled and professionally enriched by the opportunity to serve the members of NACCU as I learn new skills and am afforded new opportunities to connect with other members and serve to help them reach their personal and professional goals. I always seem to receive back more than I can give and am excited for the future of the NACCU community.
