Allison Perry to Receive Upstate New York Chapter Member Merit Award

It is my honor to announce that Allison Perry has won our Upstate New York Chapter Member Merit Award. While Allison was unable to attend our fall conference on October 16, her receipt of the award was announced then, and she will be officially presented with the Member Merit Award at our conference in the spring.

Allison Perry is one of the most dedicated members that UNYSLA has ever seen. She has served on our Board in multiple capacities, including stepping in as President-Elect during a difficult time in our Chapter’s history. She did a wonderful job, and stepped up to be a truly excellent President for our Chapter. She took on the traditional past president’s role as Nominations Chair, but then went beyond tradition to take on being Awards Chair, and then ran to serve as the Director, Membership & Recruitment, the position she holds today.

Allison has been a constant source of leadership for our chapter, and has also always stepped up to do the hard work necessary to keep UNYSLA strong. Whether it’s conducting membership polls or volunteering her time and effort to ensure that our conferences run seamlessly, Allison has always makes sure that things get done, and done well.

Allison Perry has earned the Upstate New York Chapter Member Merit Award many times over. We wish she could have been with us at the fall conference to receive it, but we are all looking forward to presenting it to her come spring.
