We Need Your Thoughts, Your Expertise and Your Willingness to Share
MSA is always seeking relevant content for our biweekly blog, and we hope you are interested in sharing your skills and experiences with the MSA community. All the members of our community are trained professionals and experts in the field — and have interesting, personal and relevant material to share with their peers. One of the defining characteristics of our association is our members’ unflagging willingness to assist each other — and a blog post offering info, suggestion, and practical steps is a way to spread that word across our community.
We hope you will all consider this as a way to shine at your own institutions and businesses. Publishing your expertise in a blog for your association of 1,200-plus members shows the knowledge and willingness to contribute that makes you an industry leader.
Perhaps you have an intriguing industry topic you’ve been itching to write about, or you devised a solution to a common nonprofit retail problem. Did you present something at the recent conference in San Diego or find inspiration there that led you to investigate an issue? Maybe you recently presented to your board and the content is relevant and would be of use to our community. What have you been working on that you would love to share?
