 Volunteers of the Month

Congratulations to ANJULA MITTAL

Chapter Volunteer of the Month for July.

Anjula stepped up on the new Chapter Pass Program offered by National by pulling a report to build a list of eligible non-chapter members.  She created and sent an invitation with all the information of signup required using passcodes provided by National.   She tracked these offers with an expiration date and managed the rollover of the next offer to the next PMP.  She reported on our success rate of this Program (she successfully helped 25 PMPs sign up and join our Chapter with a FREE one year membership.  This was all above and beyond her normal, weekly/monthly member communications as PMPs join, renew or leave our Chapter.  This new Chapter Pass Program was a great opportunity offered by National but it took a huge amount of effort to plan, coordinate, monitor and report on … again, all above and beyond Anjula’s normal duties in her role as Director of Member Outreach. Anjula has always had an exemplary attitude in all of her volunteer work.  She is always positive, encouraging and solution oriented.

Congratulations to ANITA WILLIAMS

Chapter Volunteer of the Month for August.

Anita jumped in almost as soon as she became a chpater member to support the Programs team.  Anita has been a big help to her VP by attending two board meetings in my place.  Another aspect of Anita's volunteer experience is that she took an idea and ran with it to a successful conclusion.  The July happy hour was not part of the Programs or Membership agenda but Anita was excited to give it a try and work with the Membership Team to make it a very successful event.  Anita is always eager to pitch in and do her share.  She always has creative ideas and is ready to try new things.


Thank you, Anjula and Anita, for your efforts that make our chapter successful!
