Refreshing Opportunities


 




As the temperatures climb, people's thoughts turn to refreshing beverages.  


You know: the ones you sip and the say "Ah, that hits the spot."


You know what else hits the spot?  


  • Refreshing relationships that have gone dormant.  
  • Refreshing my understanding of things learned long ago.
  • Refreshing an awareness of the emerging challenges and opportunities for one's profession.
  • Refreshing your knowledge of the current realities others are experiencing.
  • Refreshing one'scapacity for trying new things, taking risks, and challenging boundaries.
  • Refreshing a commitment to your personal path.
  • Refreshing your contribution to advancing your community.
  • Refreshing the skillset needed to meet current demands.
  • Refreshing your personal health and well-being.
If more associations intentionally integrated these opportunities and facilitated members experiencing them in community with others, I'm pretty sure the universal response would be a simple one.


How refreshing. 


What other opportunities would you find refreshing if offered by one of your community or professional organizations?
