We've Only Just Begun: Year-Round Education, Mentoring and Leadership Opportunities with IOUG

IOUG's Director of Volunteer Engagement and Leadership Development Maria Anderson just posted a new entry to the IOUG blog as part of her continuing  IOUG Leadership Development for IT Series.

In it, she discusses the benefits of education, mentoring, and leadership and how they can help you identify new ways to get value out of engaging with the IOUG and take your career to the next level.
