Washington Chapter Distinguished Service Award
In 2010, the executive board established the Washington Chapter Distinguished Service Award. The objective of this award is to recognize Washington Chapter members for outstanding and continuous service within the chapter. Previous winners were Craig Silcox and Wayne Whiten.
Chapter's Distinguished Service Award winner this year is Vic Ackley! We will honor him during the May Luncheon. A past Chapter President, ASMC National Executive Committee member (Navy VP) and Chapter Webmaster, his work and dedicated efforts to improve the Washington Chapter over the last 14+ years, has paid dividends to our members and the greater resource management community.
Please download and post luncheon Flyer in your workspaces.
All luncheon attendees will be entered in a raffle to win 2 certificates good for a future free luncheon admission. One certificate is for the winner's own use and the other is for the winner to give to a potential new member.
