    What are You Worth? The Volunteer Management Professional:

    You know what you do is valuable. The question is: does your organization, your board, and your executive know that you are valuable?

    As a professional in Volunteer Management, part of your job is marketing yourself and your program in order to sustain your position and grow your program.

    Toot your own horn and share your accomplishments with your organization!
