Pondering from the President

Nominate Your Pick for Member of the Year!
Jessie Hughey, President


Since 1986, AWC Springfield has bestowed upon one of our most dedicated members
the distinction of being named Member of the Year. It is time to select the 2020 recipient
of this prestigious honor and your input is needed.

When our members volunteer for board positions, committee chairs, and never miss a
meeting or social, we take note of their extraordinary enthusiasm for the success of our
chapter. Active participation is a commitment that involves your personal time and
finances. It is also an opportunity to grow your career building talents and leadership
skills. We have many deserving members in our chapter who display enthusiasm and
excitement for sharing their dedication and devotion to AWC. Please tell us who you
think should receive this honor and be named the 2020 AWC Member of the Year.

Here’s how to nominate a deserving member. Send an email
to Mitzie.Zerr@yahoo.com by Friday, May 29. Include the AWC member’s name and a
few sentences on why your nomination should receive the honor. The person receiving
the most votes will be announced as The Member of the Year at one of our upcoming
meetings.

Our most recent previous winners:
2019 Carley Wannenmacher
2018 LaDonna Greiner
2017 Jacqueline Post
2016 Sharina Smith
2015 Anjanette Labellarte Gilbert
