A Working Group chair role also have very tangible results to employers.
They see the work we help shepherd and
it feels their corporate hearts with warmth.  I also like chairing working
groups - the interactions are much more personable
and enjoyable. I like to think I am OK at it.  But I also like working and
I can move in and out.

An AD job looks and feels like middle management. I feel I would do a
horrible job at it.
I've always been lucky to have great ADs but I feel my role is to make
their jobs easier however possible.
