NCC Joins Presidential Inauguration Festivities
On Monday, January 21st, NCC was represented among those who made their way to the U.S. Capitol for the 57th Presidential Inauguration. Several employees joined more than one million people who were on hand to witness President Barack Obama take the oath of office for a second term.
Although the NCC associates had to rely on video screens in order to view the details of the ceremony (one found a spot close to the CNN broadcast tower nearby the Washington Monument, and another in the middle of the massive crowd on the mall), they were thrilled at the opportunity for the first-hand experience of the inauguration. Additionally, one of the NCC attendees remained in DC to catch a closer glimpse of the First Family during the Inaugural parade down Pennsylvania Avenue. Heading out of DC at the end of day, our employees navigated through hordes of people, blocked-off streets, and crammed metro trains to make it home safely and back to the office the next day.
Working and living in and around Washington, DC has allowed NCC employees to experience a diverse range of events in and out of the office. In addition to joining the Inauguration festivities, we have participated in Hearing Loss Association’s Walk4Hearing at the Tidal Basin; we visited the Library of Congress National Book Festival; and we ran, walked, biked, and canoed through the beautiful landscapes of the region during our Get Fit Challenge. We have produced verbatim transcripts for the engaging panel discussions at the Woodrow Wilson Center and the informative and entertaining lectures at the Library of Congress, which on occasion have inspired us to pursue the subject matter further outside of the office.
It is because of our employees’ collective appreciation for and interest in the significant political and cultural events that happen in our own backyard that we are able to thrive. Each NCC team member is dedicated to the highest levels of support, innovation, and service we provide for many of the organizations within the region, collaborating together to continually create a better experience for our well-respected, growing list of clients.
