HBA Northern Chicago is pleased to announce that our November Volunteer of the Month is Margaret Walczak. When asked to share her experience as an HBA Northern Chicago volunteer, she told us:
"I am deeply honored and humbled to have received the Volunteer of the Month award. The HBA Mentor/Mentee Program has been a staple in my professional life and has provided, not only mentoring and networking opportunities, but I have also gained many friendships. Since this is my fourth year in the program, I wanted to give back to HBA, therefore I joined the marketing committee. My experience as a volunteer has been incredibly rewarding, allowing me opportunities that I would not have had in my job or anywhere else. The volunteers are incredible people who give their time and skills to make the HBA such a wonderful organization – this is infectious and a great way to experience additional benefits of the HBA. Being part of this volunteer committee has allowed me to grow personally and professionally. I hope to continue to contribute and make a positive impact to this awesome organization. My heartfelt thank you for this award."
