When geese fly in formation, they can get 71% further than they could if they flew alone. As individual leaders in our organizations, we can achieve more if we stick together and support each other through MHVRP. I am so excited to see the new members that have joined our group. Thank you also to those of you who renewed your membership. The more people that are members, the more talent and ideas we have to share.
We need to stay in formation with those who are headed where we want to go and be willing to accept their help as well as give ours to others. This is the beauty of our organization. No one is alone. If you are asked to change a process or do something new, send out an email to our membership. The chances are that someone has already done it or is doing something similar. All of our plates are too full to spend time reinventing volunteer roles or process changes. Ask your fellow members for help.
Take turns leading. If we all take a turn leading, it will not be overwhelming for any one individual. The added benefit is that new leadership keeps our organization alive and moving forward. If you think you would like to be in a leadership role, you have an opportunity right now to serve on the board of MHVRP. We are looking for someone who would like to learn more about our state organization and would be willing to assist with keeping our by-laws and policies updated. The role is By-laws Chairperson. If you would like more information, please contact me. It is a great first role for someone who has not been on the board before.
Encourage each other to keep up the pace. MHVRP is a wonderful support group. Contact your fellow members if you are feeling overwhelmed. We have all been there. Sometimes, just talking to someone can really help.
Stand by each other in difficult times. Most of our organizations are going through significant change. Attend regional meetings and state educational offerings to learn how to weather the health care storm.
Let's all fly in formation and remember to drop back to help those who need it! That is the power of pulling together.
