Chapter 8. Volunteering and Professional Development

People volunteer for various reasons. In general, they do so because they like to give and receive; to fulfill a need; because they believe in a particular cause; and most significantly, because there is some personal and professional return for them. People usually get involved in their professional organization, chapter activities, and committees to

  • network with colleagues

  • increase visibility to market themselves

  • add professional activities to a résumé

  • try out new materials and tools before an audience
