SPEAK IT! DEMONSTRATE IT. VALUE = An Invitation to Succeed!
2) Exercise your Right to join an association of like-minded professionals. See the Directory of Associations & Organizations @ www.ccqweb.org/assocations to network, increase trainings and understand how to obtain certifications, credentials and other recognitions that will help you to stand out in the profession. American Express always advised us, “Membership Has Its Privileges”.
