Why do we belong?
  1. A sense of fulfillment and accomplishment in seeing projects and programs launched and thriving.
  2. Leadership experience and responsibilities that result in personal growth in areas other than one's chosen career.
  3. Pride in being able to affiliate with an organization recognized for its achievements in the community.
  4. Develop friendships that last a lifetime. 
  5. Personal and business contacts which evolve when business and professional volunteers meet and work together.
