3 Reasons to Get Involved in Professional Organizations

by AICPA | Jan 26, 2015   ()
Take your pick: Rotary, Kiwanis, college alumni groups … the sky's the limit on the number of organizations you can get involved in, but how do you know which group is a good fit?

Getting involved can benefit you in many ways—from networking, to the feel-good aspect of volunteering, to developing lasting personal and professional relationships. Yet, time is limited, and with a busy career and social life, you can’t possibly get involved with all the organizations in which you might be interested or with those who want you as a volunteer.

How do you decide which organizations are right for you? You have to think about your objectives in terms of how your service helps fulfill your own professional development goals, your employer’s desire to bring in and keep business, and the kind of service you want to give.
