We want to have the site ready to launch by October 1. Over the next few weeks, we'll be shifting through themes and migrating content from the old rpcvw.org.
Please read this post if you are helping to test the website. Click the title above to see more.
A recap on our efforts to create a new logo and website for the group.
Boston was the site of the 2013 Peace Corps Connect annual conference, bringing together representatives of the community from all over the country to meet and and share ideas on promoting the third goal. The RPCV/W delegation included President Mariko Schmitz, Social Director Courtney Dunham, PR Director Chris Robinson, and Board Member Emeritus Arvis Layton. They met with RPCVs and group leaders from as far away as Hawaii.
Here's the sample ballot for the upcoming elections. Members will vote on new directors, a new logo, and the recipient of our Partnership for Peace award.
Since 1985, RPCV/W has held a simple ceremony of remembrance at the gravesite of John F. Kennedy, founder of the Peace Corps. This year, we choose May 29, 2013, which would have been his 96th birthday.
Each summer, RPCV/W holds its Annual Meeting as stipulated in its bylaws. All RPCV/W Members and their guests are welcome at this catered event. This year, our Summer Barbecue will be held at the National Zoo on June 22 from 12 - 3pm.
RPCV/W President Chris Austin was invited to a Conversations With America roundtable discussion on the 10-year anniversary of PEPFAR.
On Saturday May 11, RPCV/W supported the BEST Kids 5K Race and Kids' Fun Run.
Part 2 of our ongoing initiative to describe how we get the word out and how similar groups can do the same.
