SCI Volunteer Case Studies
11 Jan 2016
Are you thinking about joining an SCI committee or becoming more involved with your Group? Becoming an active volunteer will create and strengthen your skills in networking, event planning, leadership, team work, budgeting and marketing. Serving on a committee allows you to interact with people from different backgrounds and experiences whilst building your confidence and credibility.
If you're still not sure if joining a committee is right for you, or you're not sure how you could balance voluntary activities around your current job or studies, then read the case studies below to gain a better understanding.
As Giuliamonica Leonardi (MAC and Biotechnology Technical Interest Group Committee) explains in her case study, being on a committee 'is like opening a window on the future at each meeting while adding a new line on your CV.'
If you'd like to get in touch with any of the people who have taken part in our case studies, or other committee members, you can do so via the Members' Directory (you will need to sign in to view)
