Aaron Kanne “Membership has helped me in my career because it has given me an avenue of continual learning and growth. Plus, I have had the chance to meet so many others that I've been able to build relationships with and I can call on them whenever I need advice or another perspective on my specific problems. I also enjoy mentoring others, and I feel I've been able to positively impact the careers and lives of others, which gives me a sense of fulfillment in my career and professional life.”
