It is awkward to write about your own award – but I would do it for any of you, so I should do it for myself.
I have been an active member of The Boston Club since 2011. Having served on the Governance, Corporate Relations, Programs Leadership, and Marketing committees – many of those simultaneously so that I could liaise between them – I like to think that my time has made an impact.
In 2016 I had the idea that programming and member communications and relationship building needed to move beyond just in-person options. So, under my leadership, the marketing committee worked with the technology committee to devise, design, and launch ROME, the Remote and Online Member Engagement initiative.
Essentially we allowed members to engage with Boston Club committees and programs digitally – through Zoom meetings instead of conference calls (admittedly not always a popular option) and to access programming through live streaming, video clips, blog posts, and Facebook Live. The roll-out was led by my co-winner of the award, Stefanie Heiter (shown left in the photo).
Thank you for the kind recognition of the Virtual Reality Award. It is always a pleasure to see ideas put into practice and appreciated by others.
