Recognizing members that stand out, go above and beyond normal volunteer activities to enhance the reputation of ABC.
Do you know a fellow member who goes above and beyond normal volunteer duties? Maybe a member who has done something particularly notable to advance the message and mission of ABC/CMEF? Or, a member who has a well-rounded knowledge of ABC/CMEF and its benefits and shares that knowledge with members and non-members alike? Maybe you know of a member who seems to be at every event or training opportunity ABC/CMEF offers? Then, nominate that member for ABC Idol!
Members with the highest level of nominations will be named ABC Idol for the month and be presented with the ABC Golden Hammer until a new ABC Idol is named!
Members who win ABC Idol receive special perks such as:
- Recognition opportunities on the ABC website, e-news, and at the ABC Office
- Special reserved VIP parking at the ABC office
- Recognition at an ABC event
Tell us about your involvement with ABC/CMEF?
I am on several committees with ABC, OSHA Partnership, Safety Committee, BBQ Committee and the Texas Hold’em / Casino night Committee. I try to be as involved as I can.
Why did you decide to become involved with ABC/CMEF?
I was introduced to ABC/CMEF when I started work here at Craig & Heidt. Sam Is a great influencer and has encouraged me to get as involved as I can.
What’s your greatest achievement (personal or professional) and how has it shaped the person you are today?
I would say my greatest achievement would be overcoming the hurdles to be where I am today in this industry. I have been in this industry since 1996 when there were very few women in the field and I always had to prove that I could do my job.
What’s the best piece of advice you have to offer for someone new to the industry?
Never Give up. There are plenty of opportunities to grow and learn. Never have a closed mind on what you can do!
