Volunteering Impact Stories

Randy Black, PMP

The opportunities to network, connect with some really great people and collaborate [have had impact]. I’ve also learned where my limitations and strengths are, and discovered how to rally people to a cause.

2013 Region Mentor

Marge Combe

The value has been finding people with common interests but dissimilar cultural norms, getting to know them better, understanding where they are coming from and enjoying their company.
