Maria Sgambati, M.D., Bethesda-Silver Spring Regional Coordinator
Ten people turned out on a chilly September evening for the fall networking dinner, now traditionally held at the La Madeleine restaurant in Bethesda. Over dinner and after introductions, announcements were made. June Baldwin, a long time member and regulatory writer, has stepped up to the plate to serve as the new Chapter treasurer. Maria Sgambati announced that after two and half years of service, she will be stepping down at the end of 2011 as the Bethesda-Silver spring coordinator. Also, we have had an opening for the membership coordinator position. If you are interested in volunteering for either of these positions, please contact Stefan Schuber for more information.
Remember, we are an all-volunteer chapter: please step up and help out even if you can only commit for a year or so. It makes a big difference and keeps our chapter vibrant! And it doesn’t take much time; most positions take only several hours a month — give up TV for a night and give back to the chapter! Stay tuned for an email coming out with announcements about these open positions.
Also present at the meeting was Becky Phillips, the registrar and education coordinator from AMWA headquarters in Rockville. Becky filled us in on some changes in the certificate programs and updates for the national conference. Please stay tuned for an email about the MAC ‘Greet and Go’ at the conference.
We are also already planning for the spring chapter conference. Due to the success of the survey last year, we will be sending out another member survey for workshops at the chapter conference.
