DCMADA 2012-2013 Board Kick-Off
On the evening of Wednesday, August 29, 2012, more than 40 DCMADA members attended a Board kick-off and welcoming event at the home of Rebecca Scritchfield. President Dianne Benjamin led the brief business meeting and thanked the Board for their contributions, especially who worked over the summer. Liz Dennis, Treasurer, continued the good work of her predecessor (Erika Pijai) and opened a new bank account for the organization. The Public Policy Committee also started the work of planning for a Food Day event for 2013. Rebecca received special thanks for graciously hosting this kick-off event. Whitney Bateson and Liz Rahavi were thanked for their effort planning the kick-off meeting. I know we all look forward to another great year! Please enjoy the photos of members at the event below
