THE COMMUNICATORS CLUB

I am on the Planning Committee for the Annual Meeting of the Communicators Club.  The following is the official announcement of the Annual Meeting, and Member Registration for 2018-2019:

THE COMMUNICATORS CLUB

ANNUAL MEETING

EARLY BIRD REGISTRATION

The Communicators Club will hold their Annual Meeting on May 8, 2018, at The Grill on the Hill, located on 1929 Skyline Drive (just inside Green Hill Golf Course), in Worcester MA, from 5:30-8.  The cost is $25.00 for members, $30.00 for guests and non-members.

Registration begins at 5:30, followed by the serving of heavy appetizers and cash bar.  The Business Meeting will follow.

 The Business Meeting will consist of:

  • The acknowledgment of sponsors.
  • The acknowledgement of the volunteer effort of our outgoing Board members.
  • Nomination and election of new Board members for 2018-2019.

TCC is pleased to announce that our Annual Meeting Speaker is Cherylann Gengel, Co-Founder of the Be Like Brit Foundation.

She, and her husband Len, co-founded Be Like Brit as a tribute to their daughter Britney, who perished in the Haiti Earthquake of 2010.  Britney’s last text to her parents was her desire to build an orphanage for the homeless children of Haiti.  This dream came to fruition in December of 2012, when the orphanage, shaped like the letter “B”, in honor of Britney, was completed.  Since then, more than 1,200 volunteers have pitched in. The organization also helped build more than 100 homes for residents of Grand Goave, Haiti, who have needed shelter.

You can find more information about the Be Like Brit Foundation at www.belikebrit.org

Registration for membership is also being held at this time.  TCC is offering this one-time discounted $60 “early bird” individual membership rate that will allow for member-rate meeting pricing throughout the year.  It’s a great value!

A new perk of membership this year is that the Clark University School of Professional Studies, sponsor of our May 8 Annual Meeting, is offering a 30% tuition discount off any Masters’ Degree courses within the SPS program.

NEW ENGLAND FITCHBURG LUPUS WALK

I am also Publicity Coordinator for the New England Fitchburg Lupus Walk, organized by “Sue’s Sweeties Against Lupus”, a local team that raises funds for the Lupus Research Alliance, which dedicates all of its monies toward Lupus Research.

Lupus is an autoimmune disease, affecting over 1.5 million people in the US, primarily in women, African-Americans, and Latinos.  There is no cure.  LRA is the primary fundraising and research organization for this disease, where 100% of all monies raised goes toward Lupus Research.

LUPUS ADVOCACY IN WASHINGTON

Last year, the LRA descended on Capitol Hill to speak with Legislators, to promote several funding bills aimed at increasing Lupus Research and Public Awareness.  Our Walk was proud to have our fearless leader, Sue Myrick represent us in Washington for the 2-day event.  She, and her colleagues (affectionately known as “Lupies”) learned about the various bills going through the House and Senate, then spoke with legislators from their respective home states to promote these bills, and educate them on this disease.

The Walk is looking for a new venue to hold this annual event.  Please watch this page, as well as our Facebook page for further updates on this.
