Congratulations Debbie Wright! You are AMA Baltimore’s January 2012 Volunteer of the Month. This is our time to share your amazing contributions to our chapter with the world!
Debbie is one of our longest standing members, as she joined the Baltimore chapter in 1983 (sheesh, she was practically in diapers). Her loyalty and commitment shines through as she serves on the membership committee. Each month, Debbie is responsible for membership retention and engagement, and judging by our solid and growing membership numbers, she does an excellent job. In addition, she manages the Marketing Career Network job database for AMA Baltimore.
In her spare time, Debbie is a marketing manager for FedChoice Federal Credit Union managing events, advertising efforts, and marketing materials to prospects and customers. On top of it ALL, she finds time to help her daughter select a college and enjoy Katy Perry concerts with her husband (no, we’re not kidding, she is a very avid Katy Perry fan).
Debbie – thank you for everything you do for this chapter and we all look forward to continued success.
Are you jealous of Debbie? Do you want to volunteer? Don’t be shy – there’s always something for you to do. For volunteer opportunities, please send an email to our President Rob Macdonald at firstname.lastname@example.org.
