DRMA doesn’t usually get involved in promoting members’ products and services; however, I think it’s important to pass on members’ offer to help other members specifically related to the COVID-19 situation. Click here to see a list of the offers I’ve received or to get your company on this list.
A way to connect with other members is through volunteering . . . you probably know that DRMA accomplishes its goals through the efforts of volunteers and staff. But why should YOU volunteer? What’s in it for you? According to the American Society for Association Executives . . .
86% of hiring managers in the country’s largest companies recently cited involvement in industry or trade associations as somewhat or very beneficial to an employee's career
Companies value employees who proactively seek opportunities to develop their skills and expertise
Participation in professional associations is an effective way to learn of new industry developments and network with others in the field
Taking an active role by volunteering for committees, writing articles for association publications, and delivering presentations allows employees to strengthen their leadership abilities, interpersonal skills, and business acumen.
