Congratulations to January 2013 Volunteer of the Month, Erin Asprooth. Erin serves as social media chair person on the marketing team and was nominated by Pamela Landau. Pamela says Erin “has done a great job of becoming adept at using our social media platforms, and has increased membership in our chapter’s Linkedin group by 15% since August.”
Erin joined HBA less than a year ago, just after completing her MBA. She had met several HBA members during her graduate program and was looking for opportunities to develop her leadership skills and to network with successful women. Through her position as social media chair, Erin has added new skills that she has used in her real job. She joined the communications committee of her company’s women’s leadership group and now leads their social media efforts.
Erin suggests that members volunteer right away. She says that meeting people through committee work makes it easier and more comfortable to network at events. Volunteering also allows you to stay connected even if you are unable to attend every monthly event.
The HBA Chicago chapter thanks Erin for her contributions.
