Marilyn Basch

What are the nominee’s experiences?

Marilyn, herself hard of hearing, has been a member of the PSD Alumni Association for 49 years. She started as a circulation manager in 1972 when Lillian Hoshauer was the editor of the monthly newsletter. Under her leadership the membership grew to about 1,500 during the 1970’s. She still manages the newsletter to this day, which includes printing, collating, folding, inserting into envelopes, adding address and return labels, and finally mailing them. In 2006 she was elected as Treasurer of the PSD Alumni Association, a position she has held for 15 years. 

What are the nominee’s activities in the deaf community?

Marilyn is involved with PSD Alumni Association fund raising events. 

What does the nominee volunteer in the deaf community?

Marilyn volunteers her time when there is a need. 

What are the nominee’s goals to improve PSDAA?

Her goal is to support PSDAA.  Many PSDAA members admire her and her efficient member. She is punctual in responding, manages the Alumni’s bank account, and pay bills in a timely manner. Since she’s already familiar with the treasurer’s duties and responsibilities, she’s a natural candidate to continue to serve in that role for the 2021-24.
