One of the fastest ways to make a genealogy society better is to get involved. I am a member of my local society, Marin County Genealogical Society. I have been a ‘regular’ member for a couple of years now. I have attended most of our monthly meetings in the last couple of years.
Recently, our Treasurer announced that she will be moving to a new area and will not be able to remain on our Board. I decided that it was time to put my money where my mouth is and volunteer to complete the term of the Treasurer position.
We had our monthly meeting the last week of November. It was awesome that the next day I was already taking checks to the bank.
I am looking forward to being in the Treasurer position. Next time your society has a position open consider volunteering for it. You may be surprised how happy it will make you.
