Why join a Professional Society?
WSRT members are located all over the state of Wyoming, many of which you may never get the chance to know otherwise. Make friends and build professional relationships. You never know when you may land your dream job because you were active in the community!
WSRT members enjoy a discounted rate to the annual conference and business meeting. Conferences are not only a way to gain CEs, but are a great chance to meet members (and students) from all over the state. Being a member can also give you the opportunity to mentor or learn new skills. We all have knowledge and skills we can teach and more we can learn, no matter what stage in game you are.
Being an active member of WSRT can give you the chance to develop your leadership skills. It also won’t hurt your resume when you can say you are active in a professional community. Good leaders make good organizations, so step up to the task.
The WSRT isn’t only an annual conference and badge for your resume, it’s there to protect the profession in our state. That may mean fighting to block bills that could jeopardize our future or mean helping pass legislation that will help us. The WSRT stays up to date on government happenings that affect the profession and will be there to fight for you.
Without members, there is no organization. Active members keep the organization running behind the scenes and without them, the organization will crumble. Being active in an organization is a way to give back to the profession that gives to you.
We love what we do, so stay active and motivated! Motivation rubs off on others, and in all areas of your life. It’s amazing to be a part of a group where the members and leadership love what they do and are eager to grow the organization.
