Are you Shy, Super-Engaged, or somewhere in between?

Are you Shy, Super-Engaged, or somewhere in between?

In the HEUG Community, we engage all volunteers!

People choose to volunteer for a variety of reasons. For some, it offers the chance to give something back to a community or make a difference to the people around them. For others, it provides an opportunity to develop new skills or build upon existing experience and knowledge. Regardless of the motivation, what unites them all is that they find it both challenging and rewarding.

As most of you know, HEUG is a not-for-profit organization that relies on volunteers. Whether you like to volunteer in a small way or a big way, you play an important role in the success, health, and sustainability of the organization. I want to take this time to thank all the volunteers that have been involved with HEUG already.

A few weeks ago, HEUG introduced a new Volunteer Module.  We hope you had a chance to look at it. A robust system will pair your volunteer profile with a volunteer opportunity. The volunteer profile gives you a strong identity for your dedicated work. You can upload a picture, list skills you have to offer, and list areas that you are passionate about. So opt-in, create your member profile, and start getting involved!  To learn more about the volunteer module, our member blog will be giving more in-depth information.

I am a big advocate for volunteerism. I love to get involved because I am able to give back to a community that I believe in and passionate about. I am very lucky to be able to volunteer for two organizations that I can learn from other members/volunteers.

Volunteering makes you happy…. The more we give, the happier we feel.


All the best!
