    Sue Flannigan Member of the Year Award Sue Flannigan Member of the Year Award

    Many factors are considered when selecting Member of the Year. Some of our members volunteer their time as it helps promote their business, others step up and become engaged with becoming member of a committee, while others increase their involvement by taking an active leadership role.  Financial contributions are not overlooked though they are definitely not the only consideration.  We appreciate all of the roles each member fills in this one big association puzzle.
