Congratulations HBA Chicago February volunteer of the month: Kimberly Wilber-Mader

HBA Chicago is pleased to announce that our February volunteer of the month is Kimberly Wilber-Mader. When asked to share her experience as an HBA Chicago volunteer, she told us “I have been an active member of HBA Chicago since 2007 and have been a volunteer on the marketing committee for most of those years. I have witnessed the HBA Chicago chapter and the marketing committee change and grow significantly over the past decade. One of the things I value about my HBA membership is the opportunity to meet people with a broad-range of careers, skills and perspectives that are outside my wheelhouse. The main reason I volunteered for the marketing committee is I haven't had much experience with marketing, and saw it as a chance to gain a perspective on marketing strategies and techniques. I have truly enjoyed the different approaches, styles and initiatives that each new director brings to the marketing committee. In the last few years, I’ve benefited from figuring out tweeting and posting to LinkedIn or Facebook. Also, I truly appreciate the great flexibility in HBA Chicago volunteer opportunities. As a manager in Abbott Molecular’s R&D group, I have a fairly limited amount of time to participate in volunteer activities but whatever time I have it has always been enough. Involvement in HBA Chicago makes it very easy to build your network with incredibly skilled and talented people. The organization is valuable no matter where you are in your career but I think it can be most valuable for people at the start of their career, and the Gen Next initiative is a great addition. Lastly, the HBA speaker program is top on my list of values. There have been many outstanding programs over the years that were so inspirational. Not only were they inspirational but they really made me think differently and act differently both in my professional and personal lives. Thank you very much for this recognition! I truly appreciate it”
