The President’s Award is the one award that I have at my discretion to make.
Yvette has been a board member since 2019; serving one year as a board member and 3 years as the financial administrator for the chapter. It has been a true honor to work with Yvette since I met her in 2019. I consider her a friend and most importantly I can talk the number talk and she totally gets it. She has made my role as President so easy because I know she’s got my back and I don’t have to question and review the chapter financials. She has taken the lead on the budget process and does the same careful review of our spending I would do. The other thing besides speaking the numbers language that has been so valuable to me and this chapter is her “quiet” wisdom. She is my voice of calm and “we got this”. Yvette has been a very thoughtful member of the chapter board and this year stepped into a role as an active member of the great Connecticut conference committee.
Thank you, Yvette, for the ‘all’ you have given to this chapter and I look forward the wonderful things you will do as the conference committee chair.
Please join me in congratulating Yvette as the 2023 recipient of the CT Chapter President’s Award.
