Volunteer of the Month–Deborah Silvi
by Paul Mueller, Senior Information Development Manager, NetIQ Corporation
Deborah Silvi is the STC Houston September 2002 Volunteer of the Month for her work with the Competitions committee to prepare for this year’s technical publications, art, and online competitions. Deborah is serving as competitions general manager and chapter historian for our chapter. She has taken a leading role, along with Competitions Director Deborah Crockett, in ensuring a smooth relationship with our trading partner, STC Atlanta.
Deborah has been a very active member of STC Houston for many years, and her accomplishments continue to astonish us. Most recently, Deborah was recognized by the Society as an Associate Fellow for her extensive, dedicated service. While working at BMC Software as a technical publications manager, Deborah continues to dedicate her “spare” time to help our chapter grow and flourish. Her contributions over the years involve most areas of the chapter, including serving as chapter president, 2001 Region 5 conference treasurer, 1994 Region 5 conference co-chairman and programs manager, and chapter historian. She was also responsible for the chapter historical items on display at STC Houston’s 40th Anniversary Party in May.
I was fortunate enough to work with Deborah on the 2001 Region 5 Conference, and I quickly learned why so many STC leaders recognize Deborah as a trusted mentor and advisor. With her valuable experience, attention to detail, and ability to listen, Deborah helped all of us surpass our goals and develop new skills. I found myself listening intently to her guidance and learning not just from her words but also from her actions. Her skill and experience played a vital role in making the conference such a huge success.
STC Houston is pleased to honor Deborah Silvi as September 2002 Volunteer of the Month.
