“I think it is absolutely critical to a person’s professional and personal development to join a professional organization. You owe it to yourself to take the time to research all the available organizations out there and determine your best fit. It’s a way to network with like minded individuals as well as others in different industries. Most importantly it can be a perfect conduit to give back to the community through the skill sets you’ve developed over the years.”—Marcus Monroe
