Why did you decide to get involved with VIP and United Way of Greater Atlanta?
I was looking for ways to enhance my leadership skills and ability, when VIP popped onto my radar. I had been involved with United Way since I joined UPS in 2010 and I saw the Volunteer Involvement Program was a way to flex the ways in which I’m able to give back to the community.
How have you used your VIP training in the community?
VIP inspired me to seek a board position based on qualities that are important to me. Board participation is more about quality over quantity. It also served as a reminder to never forget the mission of a non-profit, which is to seek ways to serve and assist those in need.
What advice would you give to someone considering joining a nonprofit board?
Participate in VIP! It is a game-changing program with great insights and wonderful presenters and participants!
