Reflections on a Great 2011—and a Big Thanks!

Every year, WIC sends out 120+ holiday cards to the people who contributed their time to helping make WIC a success. Half of those people have regular, ongoing jobs with WIC. Yes, it takes that many people to make things happen, because no one on the team, save our association manager, gets paid to do the jobs they hold. So, we need to share the wealth, so to speak.

But it also takes this many people, because the team does in incredible amount of work. I never cease to be amazed at the accomplishments they turn out year after year. After six years on the board and nine years on the pro bono team in general, let me tell you—these women (no men have yet volunteered on the team) work hard.

That’s one of the reasons we call them the pro bono team instead of volunteers. This is real work, just as deserving of recognition and promotion as any client work we do. Hint: if you’re on WIC’s pro bono team and you haven’t highlighted that in your LinkedIn profile, you should!

So, it’s only appropriate as we end 2011 that I take a moment to acknowledge and thank the people who make WIC happen: our 2011 pro bono team. To see a sampling of the programs they did this year, scroll to end of this post.

With Much Gratitude

The following are the people to thank the next time you see or talk to them—warning long list:

Here’s just a sampling of what they accomplished in 2010:
