#24: Volunteer on the board of a non-profit

with one comment

It’s official!  Today I joined the board of an association very near and dear to my heart.  I’ve been volunteering with this particular organization on conferences and other activities for a few years now.  I really feel it is an honor to serve on the board alongside other dedicated professionals who believe that museums play a critical role in society.  I am excited to be among their ranks and am grateful to the people who nominated and voted for me to join the board.  I hope I can bring some new ideas to the table and that I am good enough, smart enough, and that—doggone it— people like me!

 

Watch out!  I'm a fancy pants board member now!

Lesson learned: Hard work and a fabulous mentor can really get you places you want to go!
