Active committee membership and involvement as an INTA leader create extensive opportunities for personal and professional growth. In this episode of a new series of podcasts called Leadership Conversations, brought to you by the Leadership Development Committee, Susan Crane (Group Vice President at Wyndham Worldwide) shares the experience of her rise from INTA committee member to INTA Board of Directors member to Co-Chair of the 2015 Leadership Meeting, which will take place in Panama City, Panama, this coming fall. Her insights highlight the personal friendships that have resulted from her involvement in INTA and the professional relationships gained through the Association that have benefited her throughout her career.
Mentoring, education, business opportunities and social friendships are the currency of INTA committee involvement. Reflecting on each stage of her engagement with the Association, Susan recounts stories of memorable milestones and provides advice on how to effectively participate in INTA committee work. Explaining ways in which one might become a valuable member of the team, Susan even reveals a few little-known facts she learned along the way about the inner workings of INTA.
With the June 2015 committee application and selection process fast approaching, this is an ideal time for both experienced Association leaders and first-time applicants alike to consider everything that INTA has to offer. Please be sure to keep checking the INTA Blog, as we will be rolling out the Leadership Conversations podcast series during the remainder of 2015.
