Randi Corey, our Director of Special Events & Volunteer Support, is wrapping up our Veteran WALK Chairs’ annual meeting that was held this weekend in Charlotte, NC. The meeting was organized with the help of Michael Ticzon, our Special Events Coordinator. This extensive meeting brought together 20+ of our returning WALK Chairs from across the country
to share the lessons they have learned and to brainstorm new techniques and methodologies for the upcoming WALK season. Topics covered included hints, tips & reminders about WALK logistics, personal stories of the good, the bad, and the ugly during WALK planning & event day, and introducing new & innovative ideas to make their WALKS that much better. Representatives from FedEx Office led a hands-on demonstration for our Veteran WALK Chairs on editing & ordering 2013 WALK materials. CEO Dawn Mancuso was also in attendance to lend support and guidance, while Aisha Heath, our Director of Development, gave advice on securing sponsorship.
Our national WALK program is 100% volunteer-led and driven. We are excited and fortunate to work with these Veteran WALK Chairs for another year and we thank ALL of our WALK Chairs around the country! Shout out to WALK Chair Phyllis Rogers who will be celebrating her 10th WALK in Denver, CO this year!
