Being elected President of a Research Management Society is an honor which carries great responsibilities. Our organizations provide several high-quality opportunities for professional development and networking to intelligent, hard-working colleagues. And amazingly, they rely on volunteers to serve as leaders.
I’m a past president of NCURA (National Council of University Research Administrators) and would like to share what happens when you volunteer to lead an RMA society. Is it hard work? Is it fun? Do you have any free time? Who does your work while you are busy with RMA society business? Hear about the highlights and the challenges. This quick-paced session will cover the impact on your current job, your colleagues, your work/life balance and share lessons learned from a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
