Being Involved in ASIST and Staying Sane - Advice From the Deeply Committed
Leadership Development Program

Hear from two ASIST members who, despite their youthful appearances, have together probably held almost every office there is (except for Treasurer or Executive Director - some things are too much to ask.) Candy Schwartz and Ellen Sleeter will discuss why they did it, how they managed, and what they gained personally and professionally from their ASIST experiences. They will outline ways to stay involved without burning out, provide encouragement for those embarking on an ASIST career, share stories and survival tips, and show attendees how being an ASIST leader can be rewarding and fun.
