Volunteer of the Month - Lori Buffum

by Paul Mueller, Sr. Information Development Manager, NetIQ Corporation

Lori Buffum is the STC Houston October 2002 Volunteer of the Month for her work with the Programs committee to help prepare for an exciting year of events. Lori is the energizer bunny of contributions to STC Houston. She keeps going and going, finding new ways to make us successful. When she heard of the opportunities on the Programs committee, she quickly contacted Cindy Pao to volunteer.

Lori is active at all the committee meetings, in constant contact through e-mail to fine tune the details, and manages to take on more tasks than we could imagine. Her efforts made our September meeting a huge success. She has also worked very hard to ensure the success of the December trip to the Symphony. Her work on the flier and her coordination of the details will help everyone who attends have a wonderful evening.

Lori has been very active as a member of STC Houston. Last year, she helped both with the Awards Banquet and with the Region 5 conference. She was part of the Publications committee that received the Award of Excellence for their outstanding work on the conference.

Lori worked closely with other committee members and our printers to deliver a top-quality pre-conference booklet, conference program, and professional conference signs. When I spoke with other members about Lori, one member had the following to say: "Lori is always willing to go the extra mile to do something for you and she does it with a genuine smile on her face. She is the kind of volunteer that makes the job easy and fun."

Lori has been a technical communicator for more than 20 years and has been a member of STC in several other chapters. She also refers to herself as a hard core technical communicator. Lori is currently a Senior Marketing Coordinator at Carter & Burgess.

STC Houston is pleased to honor Lori Buffum as October 2002 Volunteer of the Month.
