Every association – trade, professional, academic, and individual membership – all rely on volunteer leaders to effectively bring the association’s mission to life, and magnify it for all members.

Volunteers aren’t simply “extra” personnel; MBSA (as well as hundreds of other “A-list” associations worldwide) views volunteers as critical to the structure and shaping of the overall membership experience.  Volunteering literally makes the association “member-driven” in its strategic direction.
