Savvy networkers know that volunteering with a trade association is a great way to help your career, especially if you’re in marketing. You can give back to the community and help yourself — but it’s up to you to take that first step.
If you’re in the marketing industry in the Raleigh area (or relocating to the Triangle in the near future), I’m recruiting volunteers to join the Collegiate Relations committees on the Triangle AMA board. And if you’re not interested in the new scholarship program, student engagement, or collegiate-professional events, TriAMA has other volunteer positions available, too.
