It’s National Volunteer Week, an annual celebration to recognize and thank volunteers who lend their time, talent, and treasure to meet the needs of our community. Of the many ways to give back, volunteering is one of the most meaningful. It is an essential element of professional development and a great way to expand your network and gain leadership skills. Giving your time and knowledge is invaluable, which is just one of the reasons we appreciate our volunteers so much.
Volunteers are critical to SSP’s success. We want to take the time to acknowledge all of your contributions and thank you for your commitment to SSP and the scholarly publishing community. You are part of a community of over 250 members that volunteer their time to support the advancement of scholarly communications by serving on committees, task forces, the Board of Directors, writing for SSP’s blog, The Scholarly Kitchen, or acting as a mentor to our Fellows and mentees. Many of the programs SSP offers were developed and are led by our enthusiastic members like you.
We’ll recognize these contributions at our upcoming 44th Annual Meeting, June 1-3. Still, National Volunteer Week provides us with a reminder to call attention to all of our hardworking volunteers and the often invisible work they do.
Thank you for being a part of our community! Your contributions of time, expertise, and enthusiasm ensure the continued success of fulfilling the mission, vision, and goals of SSP. We’d love to hear why you give back to the scholarly publishing community. Tag us on Twitter, LinkedIn, or Facebook, or send us a note!
If you’re interested in volunteering with SSP, get involved!
