Nice to Know: Chairperson's Corner
Greetings DC Chapter!
It's hard to believe that we're already well into 2019! When I was told by the Nominations Committee in 2017 that I had been named the 2018 Vice Chair to Dede Walsh, I was both elated, and anxious. It meant that I'd be sitting in the chair seat, and now that I find myself here, I'm filled with resolve to do my best by the chapter and our board.
There is so much that I would love for us to accomplish this year, but I also want to be realistic about what we are able to do and not commit us to tackling more than we can take on. My biggest themes this year are TRANSPARENCY, COMMUNICATION, and COMPLIANCE.
Need to Know
Call for Speakers
Our monthly Chapter Luncheons are the place for interesting, insightful and engaging discussions about our industry and its future. We also want to make sure the topics and speakers we choose match our members' interests. And for this we are looking for your assistance: If you think you know someone who has something great to talk about, nominate them. And if you are interested in hearing about a particular topic, nominate the topic, and we can try and find a presenter match.
Also, if you have any fun and engaging ideas for our special events during the summer months, feel free to share them with us.
We are still developing a form, so in the meantime, please reach out to our chapter administrator, Michael Romero, at with your topic and presenter ideas.
