Volunteer Spotlight

 Meg Schiffman

After traveling extensively for work in her previous positions, Meg Schiffman desired to get more in touch with her hometown roots. “I wanted to feel less removed and more grounded in the DC marketing community to which I am originally from.” It was then that Schiffman chose to volunteer as a mentor in the AMADC’s Marketers Helping Marketers Mentor Program as a way to get more involved and immersed with other like-minded professionals. Looking to extend her reach even further into the association, she decided to serve as a volunteer. Find out how Meg Schiffman got more connected to the DC marketing scene and Got Ahead by reading this month’s Volunteer Spotlight.
