President's Choice Award Winner

2016 - Natalie Lopez, CPP

My President’s Choice Award goes to an individual who, in the president's opinion, has gone above and beyond in their service to the Board and in particular to the president

I can honestly tell you that I believe the entire board should be receiving this award but forced to choose, I have selected an individual who from my very first day on the board, has been a mentor, a cheerleader, a teacher and a friend.

When I had a question or needed advice, this person never let me down.

This person hasn't only been supportive of me, but has accomplished much as a board member.

This individual has held a leadership position all four years on the board and has done an exceptional job each year.

This person is organized, knowledgeable and totally passionate about TPC.

This individual anticipates what needs to be done and moves in action without being asked.

As an advisor, this individual saw a need and volunteered to lead several efforts including standing up our brand new chapter advisory board, driving bylaw revisions, creating and sending out numerous RFPs and mentoring two new board members both of whom were chairing major committees.

This individual has more energy than anyone I know an truly admire her as a professional and as a person.

It is with much love and gratitude that I present the 2016 TPC President's Award to Natalie Lopez, CPP.


Premier Volunteer AWARD

2016 - Susan Charles, CPP

I would like to thank my volunteers for such a great job.  

A volunteer is a person that has a spirit of service, creativity, sensitivity, strong moral values, and the ability to work in a team.  TPC is successful because of those who continuously join the volunteer team year after year to make your educational experience a good one.

TPC has chosen just that person, who continuously each year goes above and beyond.

Her Payroll Calculations 101/102 classes rave reviews year after year.  

In addition to preparing for her class session, she has readily been available to act as a Volunteer Session Monitor and/or Greeter.  Whatever service needed, she was there.

Help me congratulate Susan Charles, CPP as our 2016 TPC Premier Volunteer.
