DanPac 2009

OK, today was interesting. I did something I’ve never done before. I lobbied members of the Washington State Legislature on behalf of the YMCA of Greater Seattle.  What did that look like?

Sort of like this


Now if I could just get a few earmarks or “special appropriations”…if you know what I mean. 

For those of you who don’t know, I’ve been a volunteer at the YMCA for about 5 years now.  I serve on the marketing committee for the YMCA administration, advising them on marketing for events, programs, fundraising, etc.  Since I have a little time on my hands I’m also rewriting their emergency communications plan from top to bottom.  It’s a great organization.  Support the “Y” in your area.

Where they make the laws

They asked me to go to Olympia with them today because they suspected I would have no problem glad handing lawmakers and chatting them up about the Y and its  issues.  They know I love to chat. 😉

And yes, we’ve had a bit more snow here in Western Washington…but it’s going to melt tonight.
