#24: Volunteer on the board of a non-profit
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!
Lesson learned: Hard work and a fabulous mentor can really get you places you want to go!
