“To be yourself is all that you can do” – The late Chris Cornell
Last month, I spoke to the value of engaged membership for both the association and the individual. With that being the case, I feel it would be unfair for me to leave you with an ask and not provide guidance on how to be that engaged member. The thing I hear the most as a member of the board | executive committee, and now the Chair of NAFTZ, is, “I can’t do that” or, “I just am not comfortable doing that”. Both of these responses are absolutely understandable, especially as you try and grow your engagement with our association.
“To be yourself (as a member) is all that you can do”, and because we have a plethora of ways for you to be involved, you will not need to be anything else. If you are not comfortable with calling people to join the association, we can use help with advocacy. If speaking is not your thing, and you don’t want to present at the conference, we’d love to have you help us plan for the event up front. Finding placement for your strengths, and providing different opportunities, is one of our talents.

Our mission with members is simple: support each individual member in their strengths and help them build their involvement and platform based on them simply being themselves.
Thank you for being “yourself” and giving of “yourself” for our organization. I look forward to seeing each one of you plug in and show us who you are.
