I am going to let you in on a little secret. I didn’t set out to snag a position at MHEDA because it was my "passion." In fact, I had no idea MHEDA or even "the material handling industry" existed when I was first approached about working here at the association. It just wasn’t on my radar. But I am extremely passionate about my job and the service I provide to others, including our members, other colleagues and most importantly, the people with whom I work beside day after day.

A guide to unleashing your potential and contributing to humanity
By Chris Bashinelli and Steve Guglielmo

When Chris Bashinelli was 20 years old, he had the opportunity to go to Tanzania as part of a study abroad program. During his time in Tanzania, he worked at a community center in the town of Magi Ya Chai. While there, Chris visited an orphanage where he noticed two small children chasing a dog. Concerned that the children would get lost, Chris followed them but eventually lost track of them. Not being fluent in Swahili, Chris returned to his group and told his Kenyan teacher, Mwagi, about his concerns for the children. The teacher told Chris not to worry, that in Tanzania people had a community mindset and looked out for one another. A few minutes later, the children reappeared with the dog.
