In March 2009, the NSHMBA National Office selected me as one of their three ‘Rising Stars’. My Director of Executive Communications (and fiancee) issued a press release for this distinction which garnered some nice pubclicity for our chapter. In the March 3, 2009 edition of the Haas Newswire (an online publication for the Business School of the University of California, Berkeley), I was featured for this award. The article can be found here: http://www.haas.berkeley.edu/groups/newspubs/haasnews/archives/hn030209.html#story6
I am very grateful for all of the Executive Board Members of the NSHMBA Seattle Chapter (http://seattle.nshmba.org/board.asp) for the work that they do in making our chapter a success. I also want to thank Christine for her help in driving awareness of our chapter and of this recognition.
