PBS Member of the Month

Geri R. (geejay)

Geri drew nominations from a number of different groups at PBS. She is one of our Tour Guides, and has gotten a lot of nominations from grateful new members whom she has advised, as well as other Tour Guides.  Geri’s second “hat” is that of Data Collection Volunteer, and her third is Image Collection Approver.  Gina recently completed an enormous project of getting Large Print Mystery books documented correctly in the club database- a huge undertaking, and a wonderful boon for our Large Print readers.  Last year, Geri was also part of a group of members who got a new laptop for a PBS member in need.

Some things we have heard about Geri:

“She has been a wonderful Tour Guide!

“She works tirelessly to enhance this site for its members … in Data, Imaging or Live Help..she encourages others to join the teams, patiently teaches members who submit edits the proper process and is always upbeat.

“Geejay (Geri) is a wonderful approver. She always educates, never criticizes, and rarely gets any recognition for all her quiet work behind the lines. And she does a ton of it!

“Geri is such a team player – always quick with a compliment or a “hang in there” when you’re having a difficult day.”

“Geri should be Member of the Month for so many reasons – probably most members using the club have benefited from her work, and never even know it!”

Geri, is there anything you can’t do?  You are our Member of the Month for November.  Congratulations!

If you have any nominations for Member of the Month, submit them to us here. Your nomination will not “expire”–anyone you nominate will have a chance at getting Member of the Month if enough nominations accumulate over time. Each month the person who has the most votes accumulated when the Newsletter goes to press gets to be Member of the Month and gets a newsletter mention and a nifty MoM icon to wear on profile and forum posts with pride.  So go for it! Tell us who’s helped you in the Forums, who’s been a great swapper, who in your opinion is a credit to PBS.  We are keeping a list of all the nominated members.  Who knows–one of them might be YOU.
