Let’s face it. There’s no shortage of worthy volunteer causes out there. And there are only so many hours in the day. So how can you possibly find time to volunteer for IABC, right?
The answer is easier than you think.
First, your career is obviously important to you or you wouldn’t be involved with IABC. Since you are involved, why not make the most of the experience? Simply plan on attending one of the monthly IABC professional development events and, while you’re at it, volunteer to help with some basic meeting duties – greeting and escorting attendees, for example. Call it professional development with a dash of networking.
Second, volunteering with IABC is so easy! Not only can you volunteer to assist at a professional development event, but you can also get involved in the Volunteer Services Committee. The Volunteer Services team is getting ready to plan the second annual IABC event for nonprofits. Last year, individuals from nonprofits were invited to a half-day session where they could learn about communications, marketing and public relations from the pros – IABC members. To get the ball rolling, a series of conference calls will take place in the coming months.
Let’s see…minimal time commitment, opportunities to network and enhance professional development, and a worthy cause.
