Board Spotlight: Treasurer
In case you haven't heard, our board applications are open for our 2019-2020 year! Over the next few days, I'm going to spotlight some of our executive board positions with a series of interviews. If you're interested in learning more about a board position or are ready to apply, please follow the instructions here.
Roughly how much time do you spend a month on MSA?
6 Hours. Some months more and some less. It varies on what we had going on.
Did you have any help and guidance with this position?
I had so much support and assistance from our president and parliamentarian when I needed to take a break for personal reasons. Our parliamentarian went above and beyond to not only fill in for me but took on a massive project and gave me a painless transition back in when I was ready.
What is your leadership philosophy?
“Don’t find fault, find a remedy.”- Henry Ford
What aspect of MSA drew you to join?
I saw it as an opportunity to get to know some spouses and have something fun to do each month. Once I was on the board I learned how much room there was for me to grow and continue developing professionally while taking a break from my career during our stay abroad.
What's next for you?
I enjoyed it so much I have applied to join the board again next year! [and you should too!]
