It’s PCS (permanent change of station) season again, and that means lots of new communities and towns and cities to explore.
Anna joined Dave Etter to record her second SpouseWorld 1 to 1 interview. This time she talked with Dave about hitting the ground running in terms of community involvement when you arrive in a new location!
She gives some of the tips that helped her find herself on a local non profit board, an appointed to a local housing authority by the city Mayor within 2 months of arriving!
Many military families are hesitant to invest in their local communities, especially in leadership roles because they worry about how much time they will be in each location. Anna points out that the length of each appointment – between 1 to 3 years – fits within an assignment, if you know how to get involved shortly after arrival.
