How to Leverage an Honorary and Voluntary Position

Quite a few of my clients and colleagues accept honorary and voluntary positions with various organizations and associations. Here is how to best leverage such positions:

  • Focus on delivering genuine value for the association and its members.
  • Contribute to their newsletter each time it’s sent out and provide them with helpful improvement ideas.
  • Create and facilitate breakfast meetings and invite experts to present.
  • Launch a series of webinars or tele-seminars with guest experts.
  • Create relationships with strategic members.
  • Contact members and inquire how you and the association can be of additional help.
  • Have members share their success stories.
  • Share on your web site and blog.

When you help members of the association increase their success, the association becomes more successful and so do you.
