His positive attitude and willingness to take time to answer questions makes Andy an excellent spokesperson for the association. Working with minimal staff, he motivates people to go above and beyond the call of duty in "making things happen." We all owe a huge debt of gratitude to Andy for his constant efforts to get the association and its member councils through this difficult time in our short history.
It is with great pleasure that the association honors Andrew Gordon with the President's Award.
