But webcasts, monthly programs, conferences, even our very chapters don’t happen without people who are willing to volunteer. We need you! Why volunteer, you ask? Why not? I have been saying this for years and I will go on saying it. The more you put into your ARMA involvement, the more you will get out of it. I have never been paid either on the chapter or the region level for my sixteen plus years of service to ARMA. But I have been richly rewarded. I have gained knowledge, skills, credentials, and lifelong friends. I urge you to volunteer in you chapter!
Our annual Great Northwest Leadership Conference is only a few months away. This year we will be in Portland, Oregon, June 3rd and 4th. More details will be coming soon, but I can assure you, this is one you don’t want to miss. Mark your calendars now!
Every year, I open the Leadership Conference with “Good Morning GREATEST Northwest Region!” I truly believe that. We may not be the biggest region. In fact, I think we may be the smallest. But through planning, innovation, and great volunteers and members like you, we really do lead the way. Believe me when I tell you this, Region Managers do like to brag a bit about their regions. You all give me so much to brag about.
