Why you should join the network? This is what participants listed as the top reasons why they found the network a valuable experience. 
  1. A chance for continuing your education and keeping tabs on trends in volunteer engagement. 
  2. Generate and share new ideas. Plus there is a wealth of knowledge in the group, which is a great resource. 
  3. Building connections with PIN, The People and Information Network and other volunteer engagement professionals.
