Editor’s note: In recognition of PRSA Volunteers, we invited members of various Committees and Sections to offer their views on the importance of volunteering and reflect on what prompted them to become a PRSA volunteer. If you’re interested in becoming a volunteer, please submit your application by visiting this link.
Recently I was having lunch with some colleagues – all volunteers, of course – at a PRSA national committee meeting. When a few more dropped by, we did what good PRSA members always seem to do – we immediately exchanged hugs/handshakes and found a way to make room at the already-crowded table. Remarked one friend, “This is what I love about being with PRSA people – I always feel truly welcomed.”
