2008 Mid-Atlantic Chapter Spring Dinner
AMWA MAC's annual spring dinner took place on Saturday, June 21, at Petits Plats in the Woodley Park/Adams Morgan area of Washington, D.C. The dinner was organized by AMWA MAC Program Director Christine Hemler Smith. Fourteen AMWA MAC members attended the event, which followed the AMWA MAC chapter conference at the Omni-Shoreham hotel, where 22 registrants participated in AMWA workshops. Table settings were colorful and elegant, with lots of natural light flowing into the private dining room. Dinner and dessert were pleasing to the eye and the palate, and the service was excellent. A brief business meeting took place between dinner and dessert. AMWA MAC president Debbie Luyo introduced new president-elect Stefan Schuber and thanked board members for their service to the chapter in the past year. AMWA MAC listserv coordinator Michael Altus spoke to the group about the different listservs available to AMWA members, and encouraged everyone's participation. The restaurant provided an elegant atmosphere for an evening of fun, fellowship, and networking, the perfect kickoff to a new year for the Mid-Atlantic chapter.
