What our volunteers are saying...

I've volunteered with ISTSS in a variety of positions over the course of many years, ranging from serving as a Program Committee reviewer and subsequently a Program Committee Deputy, through serving as the Chair of the Diversity Committee, with a number of memberships on other committees such as the Web Editorial Committee along the way as well. Doing so has brought me many things, not the least of which has been the opportunity to work with some truly wonderful people who I might not otherwise have gotten to know as well.

In a more career-related vein, my volunteer experience with the ISTSS has helped me develop both specific skills and a broader awareness of how volunteering can help me grow professionally.

The ISTSS volunteer experience was fantastic and I met so many wonderful people in the organization. I think it was because of that welcoming atmosphere that I had the inclination to run for student leadership and become more involved with ISTSS. Looking back, becoming a volunteer was a first step for me toward a richer role within the organization and helped ISTSS become my "professional home."
