Benefits of MNASQ Volunteering

Fundamentally, volunteering is about giving your time, energy and skills freely.  Unlike many things in life there is choice involved in volunteering. As a volunteer you make a decision to help of your own accord, free from pressure to act from others.  Volunteers predominantly express a sense of achievement that is ultimately generated from their desire and enthusiasm to help.

Active MNASQ volunteers can participate in one MNASQ Certification Exam Preparation Courses per year – FREE of charge!  Members of the Program Committee attend Program Meetings at no charge.

Volunteering brings together a diverse range of people from all backgrounds and walks of life. ASQ members and committee members can be a rich source of inspiration and an excellent way to develop your interpersonal skills. Volunteering also offers an incredible networking opportunity. Not only will you develop lasting personal and professional relationships but it is also a great way to learn about people from all walks of life, different environments, and new industries. Networking is an exciting benefit of volunteering and you can never tell who you will meet or what new information you will learn and what impact this could have on  your career or your life.
