It has been my good fortune to have been a member of NAESP for the past several years. One of the best parts has been getting to know and work with my peers from Zone 7 and others across the United States. I have served on a couple of national committees and highly recommend it.

One of the highlights of the National Conference is Service Project day. Rolling up your sleeves and working alongside NAESP members and staff members is very rewarding. I have made professional connections and friendships through this project. It is powerful to have a peer group that extends beyond your own state and local areas. I applaud Landscape Structures and NAESP for their continued support of Service Day. Seeing the gratitude of those who are receiving the new playground and landscaping upgrades makes it all worthwhile.

Our state is fortunate to have a National Board Member. This has helped me better understand how hard NAESP works on our behalf. I would encourage everyone to consider serving on the national board.

Finally, thanks to the NAESP staff. I can honestly say that I have been well taken care of. The NAESP staff truly does care about those whom they serve!
