#1 Member benefit: Is being a volunteer - an example and mentor to our fellow members.
We discussed the need for volunteerism during our recent Spring Showcase – you and I witnessed our current NWPMA volunteers having a great time making the show a success! As a result of their enthusiasm, NWPMA received inquiries from more members asking how they can serve the association – it's great to have new volunteers emerge and join the fun!
Remember, if it wasn't for our volunteers, NWPMA wouldn't have lasted over 25 years! Becoming an NWPMA volunteer is a great way to build valuable professional relationships, gain visibility, expand your knowledge and make an impact that matters to all of us.
By giving your time and talent as a volunteer for NWPMA, you have the opportunity to not only set an example for other members to follow, but create change, set policies and effectively shape NWPMA from inside out.
As your President and in support of our current NWPMA volunteers, I ask that you please take 5 minutes and review NWPMA's Volunteer page. For example, if you have just 30 minutes 2 times per year to help out, please let us know. We'll have a project or task that needs your expertise.
Please follow this link to the Volunteer page on our website. We Are Volunteers
I guarantee you'll be surprised how just 30 minutes twice a year can help our association continue for another 25 years!
We'll do it all again in 2016....stay tuned for fun, new events at both shows, plus back to Bellevue for Fall.
Spring Showcase, April 26-27, 2016
Fall Showcase September 15-16, 2016
