This year, a very deserving member has been selected to receive the President’s Award of Distinction. She has become one of OAMR’s biggest supporters, cheerleaders, and tireless workers. She has made a big impact on all of us.
An excerpt from one nomination reads:
“When she joined OAMR she did so at full throttle. She has been extremely involved in OAMR programs, particularly, the evolution of the Mentoring Committee and first-timer events. She has been responsible for making OAMR newbies feel welcome for years. She recognized that this is a very important part of OAMR, and key to new members understanding the conferences and feeling welcome.”
“And, if OAMR Committee work is not enough, fostering OAMR Programs, and serving as a leader in her community, she is very active on the OAMR Board of Directors from Region VII. This region is geographically huge and relies on her leadership and communication skills in maintaining a cohesive, informed, and connected group.”
An additional letter of support added:
“When working with this person, it doesn’t take long to realize she is something special.”
I personally have experience that “something special” when working with this individual as they always offer a unique perspective to the conversation and always stands up and speaks out for what is right for the entire membership.
Nicole Morris, CMC, Immediate Past President,
Deputy City Recorder
City of Tualatin
As Municipal Recorders, we are at the center of municipal government and play an important role in city government, as well as in the structure of our communities as a whole. Often, we look “outside” ourselves for acknowledgement and recognition. In this case, however, we ask you to look inside our organization, at what you and other City Recorders have accomplished this year.
The President’s Award of Distinction is awarded to an OAMR member who has contributed greatly to a committee of OAMR or has performed exceptional work for OAMR. Nominations for this award are accepted only from OAMR members.
