What Does Volunteering Mean to You?
August 3, 2022
SMPS is built on the foundation of exceptional volunteers. We asked members to share their definition of volunteering. Here’s what a few had to say:
Rose Batignani, CPSM, Central Florida: A volunteer is someone who takes action, makes new connections, and is always willing to sacrifice a little so they can support and nurture many.
Marisa England, Central Florida: It means giving back to our community as a whole. It’s about giving your time and energy to causes that benefit others in a positive way.
Jill Davis, CPSM, LEED GA, Charlotte: Volunteering with any organization is an opportunity to give back and contribute to shaping our networks and communities. Volunteering with SMPS provides opportunities for all levels and roles in our industry to share creative ideas, develop best practices, bring awareness to the value of marketing in the A/E/C industry, and create opportunities to push our profession forward.
