Different people join and benefit from ISA membership for many different reasons. Whether you simply wish to learn from others (to further your knowledge and enhance your career), or teach others (to share your knowledge and enhance your standing in industry), or participate in standards (to further you and your employers interest and influence), or serve in leadership roles (to further your management and leadership skills), you have nothing to lose and everything to gain. I wouldn't be who I am, known as I am, doing what I am, and have as many career opportunities as I have, if it weren't for my involvement in ISA. I owe my career to ISA.
