“I’ve received more knowledge and connections regarding social marketing, as a volunteer webinar moderator, than I could have gained in the time and effort I put into assisting with them. I’ve learnt from some of the most innovative social marketers from around the world. It’s a fantastic opportunity to forge a common relationship in the field of public health.”

“To make the most of my iSMA membership, I signed up for some committee work. I’m glad I did. As a student working on my masters’ degree, it’s been a great to get a glimpse into the behind-the-scenes workings of a professional organization like iSMA. The focus on innovative social marketing ideas and practices has been very helpful to my thesis work. The committee process of discussing and sharing ideas has also been positive and energizing for me. I think this experience will help me pursue work in social marketing once my studies are complete.”

“Volunteering at iSMA has been a fantastic experience thus far. I’ve been able to utilize my skills to help others. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working on so many useful projects with my fellow Communication Team members, and I look forward to those that lie before us. Managing iSMA’s web and tech matters has been incredibly fulfilling for me, and has been a great way for me to expand my admin and marketing networks, and give back to the community.”
