Anyone who has spent any time around me lately knows that I am a very active member of Provisors. I am a zealous “convert”. I only joined Provisors in June, but since that time I have probably been to 30 meetings or “troikas”. I am now on the Executive Committee of the Cambridge I Group (the Recruiting Chair) and I’m chairing the Recruiting Subcommittee of the Diversity Committee.
Provisors has really energized me and had a very positive impact on my business (for now the impact has been mostly indirect but I’m sure that will change over time.) Simply put, Provisors is a great business networking group that is providing me with a terrific opportunity to grow my professional network quickly. It’s like a cult (but in a good way!)
What I love most about the organization is that there is a heavy emphasis on helping other members and on thanking them for their efforts. Being part of the organization really hammers home the message that in order to “get” you need to “give” first.
