The 2018 Recorder of the Year Award was presented to Sue Ryan, CMC, City of Newberg. The guidelines for Recorder of the Year state any OAMR member, City Manager, or Mayor may submit a confidential nomination to acknowledge recorders and recognize their excellence and professional accomplishments. The nominee must have made an outstanding contribution or performed outstanding service to OAMR, to the profession of Municipal Recorder, or to an individual city during the association fiscal year. This award recognizes outstanding service and performance over and above the person’s job description. Some possible strength’s might include areas such as public relations, records management, legislative or council procedures, or even a special project.
This year seven nominations were received. I think it speaks volumes that so many Mayors and/or City Managers took time out of their schedules to honor their City Recorders by submitting a nomination. Sue Ryan’s nomination came from her City Manager, Mayor and three of her peers. Some of the wonderful things they had to say about Sue are the following:
This list goes on and on. Sue is obviously a very dedicated, driven, professional, public servant who is held in very high esteem not only by her City Manager, Mayor, and Council but also by three of her colleagues and peers. The list of accolades they all submitted was quite impressive. It was my honor to present Sue Ryan the prestigious award of Recorder of the Year for 2018. My sincere congratulations go out to you Sue!
