When I was a doctoral student, one of my professors literally dragged me around DSI, which was in Boston that year, introducing me to everyone she knew! I’ve never forgotten her selflessness and the acceptance I received. So I remain a member to “pay it forward” by making positive contributions to the organization. Personally, I have met and learned from the best scholars and professors in the world. I’ve made friendships that will last a lifetime…AND…it’s great fun! Members of DSI have embraced me as a second career academic in ways that other organizations have not. Thus, I try to give back to the organization whenever I can.
