What advice would you give to someone just joining NMRT this year? GET INVOLVED! Your NMRT membership come with some great perks, but much of its value is only realized when you choose to get involved. Join a committee, participate in a monthly online discussion forum, attend a webinar, or volunteer at one of the conferences. It doesn’t really matter how you become involved, but it will benefit you so much to do so.
