What Does it Takes to Volunteer at the the Washington State Chapter of ASID
Do you think you have what it takes to volunteer with the Washinton State Chapter of ASID? We are always looking for energetic and enthusiastic volunteers that want to make a positive change on the profession.
Attributes of a volunteer:
LEADERSHIP: requires knowledge, talent, skill, vitality, and the ability to make a difference. In an association, this often translates into contributing to the success of programs, events, or projects. Keep track of your contributions and build your professional resume with volunteer activities.
COMMITMENT: serving as an association leader is an honor and a privilege, but it also requires a demonstrated commitment to the organization and its missions and goals.
COMMUNICATION SKILLS: Well-developed interpersonal and communication skills are essential to effective teamwork. It takes many people working together to achieve goals and objectives at an association.
PROFESSIONAL: Volunteers must be able to leave personal agendas and politics at the door in order to work for the greater good of the entire organization.
POSITIVE: A volunteer’s behavior and attitude can greatly influence others in the association. The chapter looks for positive attitudes that are optimistic and ready for a challenge.
ENGAGED: To learn about ASID and take small steps into the world of volunteering, it often is best to start at the chapter level. After a few successes at the chapter level it may be worth considering volunteering at the regional, or national level as well. Once involved, more and more opportunities will come your way.
