Why do you volunteer?
“I get the satisfaction of knowing I have contributed to something bigger than myself. I had been a practitioner alone in the wilderness for so many years, it was like my career was completely revitalized and renewed when I found ACMP. Moreover, to be able to contribute to the organization as a volunteer and to be a founding member who actually helped build the professional organization I belonged to, made me feel a great sense of satisfaction. ”
What do you like about being a part of ACMP?
“I love the people. I learn so much from the people I have the privilege of working with on the committees. I get to network and meet people from as far away as South Africa, and not only work side-by-side with them on a committee, but develop a deeper friendship with them as well. To me, that's what is so special about ACMP, being a global organization and community of practitioners.”
