And here’s what we did last year

The good thing about volunteering in Professional Development is that we have really well organised processes and systems to support you. You are not starting from scratch. You get to liaise with other Board Members who will support you eg PR & Branding, Sponsorship, Membership, Communications and the financials. So who’s interested? Who wants to get to know a very connected community of communicators a little bit better?
