PCMA Capital Chapter – Star of the Quarter 1st Quarter

Congratulations, Megan Beresford – Star of the 1st Quarter 2017!

To recognize members who have given that “extra effort” as an active member of our chapter, the Member Recognition team established the “PCMA Volunteer of the Quarter” a number of years ago. Megan Beresford, conference coordinator for the National Association of Attorneys General, is our Star of the 1st Quarter 2017!

Megan serves on the Marketing Committee as one of the graphic designers and creates the graphics for social media and event registrations. In addition, Megan creates graphics for our monthly social media campaigns.

The 1st quarter is full of on-boarding new volunteers, rolling out new initiatives, and jumping into the calendar year. Megan created custom diversity cover photos for both Facebook and Twitter and custom icons to use to share quotes on social media. She completed these under tight deadlines and easily accommodates any edits! Megan has gone above and beyond to work with new logos, branding guidelines, and image dimensions.

Congratulations, Megan, on creating professional graphics and supporting PCMA Capital Chapter and our community!
