For the fourth year in a row, the Washington, DC Chapter received a Community of Excellence Award from the STC Community Achievement Award Evaluation Committee. The citation reads:
"Community of Excellence presented to the Washington, DC Chapter for implementing successful online chapter webinars and continuing to refine the program."
WDC will be recognized during the Leadership Day event on Sunday, June 1, at the Technical Summit in Philadelphia. At that time, we will receive the certificate and the feedback comments from the CAAEC judges. As one of the most consistent and active communities in the CAA process,
our community is also a contender for the Community of Distinction award.
The Chapter Achievement Award recognizes a chapter’s outstanding accomplishments towards the goals of STC. This award is presented only to chapters that have distinguished themselves by exceeding ordinary expectations. Beginning with the 2001 awards, chapter achievement awards were separated into three categories: Merit, Excellence, and Distinguished.
The following information was provided by chapter member Allen Rotz. While at the conference in Philadelphia, check out the interesting adaptive use of the Reading Railroad Terminal: https://readingterminalmarket.org. It also includes the Reading Terminal Market which has several interesting eateries for lunch. Some serve breakfast.
From the Washington Post’s Travel Section: "Gee Whiz, Cheesesteak Isn’t Philly’s Best Sub". The article mentions DiNic’s which is in the Reading Terminal Market. The sandwiches are more than enough for two. This stand is apparently very busy but the line moves rather quickly. The downside is that they have very limited seating. They also only take cash. There might be seating in a central court, but the website fails to mention anything about this. There are other restaurants there as well https://readingterminalmarket.org/interactive-map/. So, if you don’t want to spring for SIG lunches every day, there are a variety of options in the Reading Market.
