The purpose of this award is to recognize the significant and/or unique contributions by new members to the association, defined as being a member for less than three years. The contribution must be to an MBA CSEA committee, with the results leading to improvements to the committee and/or event in the form of improved processes, procedures, creations or achieved results beyond expectations.
Laura depicts the criteria for this award in the following ways:
- She assumed the responsibilities of a seasoned member from day one.
- She was active in each of the first three years as a member, and has chaired or co-chaired three Global Conference committees including the tough job of local arrangements which involves arranging all of the hotel and entertainment activities at the Global Conference.
- She is considered innovative, organized, and is always professional and cheerful.
- This award is given to members in their first three years…so it fitting that our winner chaired the New Member Orientation this year.
