Jennifer Reed Receives a Distinguished Chapter Service Award (DCSA)

We congratulate WDC chapter member, Jennifer Reed, for earning the STC Distinguished Chapter Service Award (DCSA) award this year. The chapter appreciates her hard work and willing volunteer spirit. The citation reads:

"For your unfailing willingness to initiate and wholeheartedly support innovative and successful Washington, DC chapter activities."

Jennifer’s volunteer work for the Washington, DC Chapter began in 2002 as a member of the Public Relations committee. In 2002, she compiled the complete list of local schools for the chapter. In addition, she also designed all the chapter postcards and flyers. These postcards were mailed to all chapter members to act as a reminder for our upcoming monthly meetings.

Jennifer also served as the Capital Letter Newsletter Production Manager and the "SIGs Revealed" Column Manager. In 2005, Jennifer was elected to the office of Secretary for the Washington, DC chapter and the First Vice President, Events Committee Manger in 2006. Through her volunteer work with STC, Jennifer secured $1,000 in grant money from her employer, America Online, two years in a row. The money is used to support chapter events and online webinars.

Jennifer is now listed with previous DCSA winners in the chapter at https://wdcb.stcwdc.org/about-us/chapter-history/history-service-awards/

We have received nominations / volunteers to run for chapter president, vice president, and at-large-directors on the administrative council. We still need some volunteers to run for chapter secretary and treasurer. Nominate yourself or someone else. Run again–we welcome experienced repeats.
