Yesterday [February 20, 2013] evening five volunteers from STC Washington DC – Baltimore chapter (STC WDCB) visited WAMU's studios in Washington D.C. to help with NPR (National Public Radio)'s annual membership drive. Yours truly was also there and we had a great time while helping one of the premiere public radio stations in the United States.

WAMU

WAMU's Volunteer Coordinator Anthony Washington as well as all the other staff did a great job welcoming us with open arms, answering all our questions, and supporting us in every way. The station also did not forget to serve delicious hot food and beverages during the two and a half hours we were there answering the phones.

The STC WDCB volunteers were:

  • Muniza Arifin – STC WDCB President
  • Michelle DiPenti – STC WDCB Member
  • Ann Ray – STC WDCB First Vice President, Events Committee Manager, Society Liaison Officer
  • Viqui Dill – STC WDCB Director-at-Large, Social Media Manager
  • Ugur Akinci – STC WDCB Director-at-Large, Membership Manager

Here are some snapshots from yesterday's volunteer event:

And this is our fashion statement of the day… What do you think about our CafePress store's chapter logo items t-shirts? I think they rock!

Thank you Muniza. Thank you Michelle. Thank you Ann. Thank you Viqui.
