VIDBE-Q Volume 66 Issue 3 important work that we do for special education professionals, students, and families. Have you ever thought about deepening your engagement with DVIDB? Every volunteer is valued and appreciated. Each person who contributes (large or small) helps us to fulfill our mission. There are volunteer and leadership roles available to fit every level of commitment. Maybe you have talents and time to share but are wondering what's in it for you. Like many of you, I'm already juggling the responsibilities of family, career, and community. So, what makes serving DVIDB worth prioritizing? Here are five good reasons to deepen your engagement with DVIDB as a volunteer or leader: You have a desire to make an impact. You likely entered our field because you wanted to make a difference. And undoubtedly you touch lives in significant ways on a daily basis. Yet, as an individual, you have a limited impact. There is only so much you can do. As an engaged member of DVIDB you have a broader impact because you are part of a larger community working toward shared goals. DVIDB makes an impact on our field by providing professional learning opportunities and support to practitioners, by shaping public policy through advocacy on behalf of individuals with visual impairments, and by strengthening the profession through professional standards and the dissemination of evidence-based practices.
