Get Involved by Morgan Mandel
Left to Right - June Sproat, Margot Justes
Many of our Acme members belong to Chicago-North RWA. We've also been board members for our chapter. For the past two years, June Sproat led our merry group. At the Holiday Party this past Monday night, she passed the baton to Margot Justes, another of our Acme members.
Past presidents for C-N RWA also include myself (Morgan Mandel) and Debra St. John. All of us have held other board positions for our chapter.
I'm not mentioning this to brag, but to make a point. We've volunteered because we realize how important our chapter is to us. We'd be devastated without it.
If you belong to an oganization you care for, think about getting involved to make sure that organization continues on. You may not have the time to be a board member, but think about other ways you can help your chapter. No matter how small your contribution is, something is better than nothing. Do your share to keep a good thing going.
