In June, the ARCS Atlanta Board voted to welcome seven incredibly talented new members. All are accomplished professionals, volunteers and community leaders, and we are delighted to welcome their energy in pursuing the ARCS Atlanta mission and impact.
On September 14th we held a new member orientation gathering where key ARCS Atlanta leaders explained their roles and responsibilities to the four new members in attendance. Several mentors joined us as well and we had a lovely evening of fellowship and connection.
We are grateful to our mentors, and Mentor Chair Barbara Marxer for organizing these seven ARCS members who volunteered to help our new members get acclimated to ARCS Atlanta. Thank you to Lee Doyle, Kristen Gibbs, Caroline Hardin, Robin King, Missy McClatchey, Linda Kay McGowan, and Becky Riley.
It was a pleasure to introduce our new members Maureen Lobb, Pace Parsons and Tricia Rosenbaum on September 18th at the lovely ARCS Fall Party. They all enjoyed meeting many welcoming ARCS Atlanta members that evening!
