Volunteer Spotlight

Melanie Bernstein

It is difficult to anticipate all of the benefits that joining AMADC can bring without taking the time to do your research and essentially dive right in. As a long-time member of AMA, Melanie Bernstein, Principal at Bam! Pow! Insights, LLC did not immediately recognize the value of joining AMADC, but recently became more involved through networking and volunteering. “While I attended the national events that AMA offers, I was not initially aware of the benefits of involving myself with the chapter community on a deeper level,” explains Bernstein. Learn more about how she Gets Ahead when you read this month’s Volunteer Spotlight.
