Thank you so much to the CITT Board and the Nominations Committee for selecting me as the recipient of the 2019 Ernie Solomon Volunteer Award at the Canada Logistics Conference 2019. It has been, and continues to be an absolute honour and great pleasure for me to contribute to the CITT as a volunteer.

I’ve been volunteering with CITT since 2003, and I believe that when it comes to volunteering you truly get out of it what you put into it.

Many of our members attend local area council events so they can meet potential customers and vendors, or perhaps find a mentor. If you want to meet people, the very best way is to do more than just show up: you should volunteer!

If you give selflessly of your time and effort you will get so much in return. Through volunteering for the CITT I have met some amazing people and grown a tremendous network of logistics professionals. Along the way, I’ve gained skills like project management and financial management; I’ve learned how to plan and run an effective meeting; and I have even had the opportunity to learn and practice public speaking.

If you would like to contribute to the logistics community, please let me know. As Chair of the CITT Toronto Area Council I’m always looking for members who are able to host a meeting or a tour, or help organize one of our events.

I encourage all CITT members to step up and volunteer your time with this great association. You won’t regret it!
