We have each found reasons to give our time to Blue Goose when we all have other demands on our time.
There is fellowship. We are a community of interest, experience, activity, and feeling. This community nature is something larger and yet more intimate than a business association or networking group. We are genuine friends.
There is education. Many of our Ponds have speakers on interesting and practical topics. Some have certified continuing education programs. Blue Goose promotes IIA, IIC, and CPCU programs. Blue Goose presents annual awards for academic excellence to individuals earning the highest grades in competitive IIA examinations. We continue to grow in our profession.
There is charity. The Ponds, each in its own way, provide needed support for a variety of charities. Some spread donations over several charities. We help those in need.
There is leadership. When we give ourselves in the work of Blue Goose, and when we are elected to office in Blue Goose, we gain experience in new areas, Poise and confidence is gained in the administration of activities and in the management of others. We acquire leadership skills.
