Do you love HDI? Do you love your DFW? Just like 1+1=2, HDI plus DFW equals DFW HDI!!! And if you love DFW HDI, you need to get more involved. Our chapter is run by volunteers who understand giving back to our industry is fun and exciting. Plus when we give back to our chapter, every officer will say they actually get more in return than they give.
I have a testimony about how the DFW HDI chapter involvement has strengthened my career. I was laid off in 2012 unexpectedly (who really plans for a layoff though). The very next day, DFW HDI had our monthly chapter meeting so I went J. We had a meet and greet where I mentioned I was laid off. I had so many people coming to me to tell me about job openings and ways to be seen on LinkedIn. It was amazing. I had an interview the very next week because of these connections. The position I eventually landed was because of my HDI involvement, specifically being an officer on the board. The hiring manager liked that I had the knowledge I did and the leadership skills I developed while being an officer. I wouldn’t have gotten to where I am without HDI or without being an officer. I have been on the board for almost 10 years and just love it!!!
We are currently preparing for Officer Elections and are seeking interested candidates who would like to know more. If you think this might be the thing for you, comment below and a current officer will get in touch with you. We might even take you out to lunch to chat about it. And who doesn’t love a free lunch!!!
Until next time, enjoy the Spring weather and get involved by running for an Officer position!!!
