The majority of our chapter members were seniors who were eager and willing to transfer their knowledge by volunteering to do chapter work, and by sharing their experiences with our members and our community. In 1991, I was elected president of our Greater Miami chapter. At that time, I knew very little about the organization, but as a lifelong volunteer, I willingly accepted the role. Community leadership and volunteer work was not new to me.
