Congratulations to Ken Evans, our Distinguished Chapter Service Award winner for 2008.-2009

Ken Evans

Ken has been an active volunteer almost from the start. He was our chapter's Membership Manager from 1994 to 1997. He worked as a Copy Editor of our chapter newsletter from September 2006 through March 2008. He has contributed articles to the newsletter. And, Ken has attended and contributed to almost every chapter council meeting for the last 15 years.

Currently, Ken is our Employment Manager, a position he has held since 2003. He goes to job websites, prints out the appropriate job listings, and brings them to our monthly meetings. He has also developed techniques for efficient job hunting, and he is happy to work with members to help them search for jobs.
