Chapter News

Star of the Quarter 1st Quarter

Congratulations Chandra Champion, MSSA, CNM, National WIC Association  – Star of the 1st Quarter 2020!

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 few years ago.

Chandra serves on the Communications Committee and is a new committee member and a new chapter member as well.  She has been proactive about volunteering and engaging with the committee from the start.  She actively participated in our first conference call offering suggested article topic ideas.  Rather than dipping a toe in the water with a small article or editing, she jumped right in volunteering to own an article series which will run through all issues of The Chatter!  When we put out a call to the full committee for anyone available to do a 30-minute shift at Mix’N Bowl to help the Membership Committee, she volunteered for more than one shift! She recently volunteered to be one of our Spark liaisons to serve on the PDC subcommittee for Q2. On top of all these examples, Chandra had a personal situation that required her attention and yet still managed to submit her article for The Chatter.  All of these examples demonstrate how engaged, committed, responsive and reliable Chandra is as a volunteer.  We are lucky to have her on our team!

Congratulations, Chandra, on supporting the PCMA Capital Chapter and our community!
