Who, you might ask, is Gail?
Well, as you know from Robin’s infamous meeting, Gail is our new national CEO for the American Red Cross. She just started her job on June 23 and we’re thrilled to get her out here to Portland within her first six weeks on the job.
And Gail’s not the only one landing at PDX tomorrow. We’re also getting the executive directors and board chairs from the largest Red Cross chapters in the country, all here for the Metro Managers Meeting (Mcubed, as I’m now going to call it).
As you can imagine, we’ve had a ton to do to get ready for this event/visit. We’ve scrubbed the floors, vacuumed the carpets and even taken down the Red Cross Racing banners. Gail and the other VIPs will see a bright and shiny headquarters…even though it still looks like a military bunker from the outside.
So bear with us. I promise we’ll return with tons of photos, some good stories and maybe even some juicy Red Cross gossip. Or maybe we’ll keep that all to ourselves…
