Volunteering is not about money. Volunteering is giving, not taking, contributing, not counting. An excellent place to start your career as a professional volunteer is at a local ASSE Chapter. Step up to the challenge and give back some of the skills and experiences that you have worked so hard to gain in your career. Give to others and experience the gifts that will be made available to you in return. Gene Barfield, CSP Let us keep ASSE-KC flag always high……..
