The Rewards of Volunteering

From President Wayne Mooneyham

Volunteering comes in many different forms and different degrees of responsibility but the ones we, as a society, are most accustomed to are related to civic opportunities. Examples of this include the privilege of registering to vote, serving in a organization, church, or on various committees. Benefits of volunteering can work both ways - for the organization or group or for the individual that is the volunteer. Many of us have experienced the satisfaction of accomplishment and reward that goes with giving of one’s effort and dedication for a worthy cause. 

Our association is a perfect example of a successful organization that is supported and run by volunteers - people who willingly give of their time and expertise for the benefit of the membership. Are their efforts appreciated? Oh, yes, you bet they are! Our association officers and directors positions are coming up for election soon and the time for consideration of some new faces and fresh input is upon us. If you have the required expertise and drive for one of these offices now is the time to let the Nominating Committee know of your interest.  Access our bylaws here.

And, speaking of volunteering, many of us attended the “Biggest Air Show in California” this past September 21, 22 and 23. The event, the California Capital Airshow, coincided with the 100th anniversary of Mather Field as an active military airbase. A number of our members worked at the event - part of an army of several hundred - you guessed it…”volunteers.” Thanks to all who participated! 

I’m looking forward to seeing you all at our October meeting! Thought for the day - Endeavor to make someone’s day better…

Wayne Mooneyham, President
