Several RPJ Member Earn Awards at Convention
Volunteering can sometimes be hard work, and every volunteer should get a pat on the back.
Or a medal.
That’s what eight RPJ members received at the Hawaii Junior Chamber of Commerce’s First Trimester Convention Banquet, held Saturday, April 28 at the Honolulu Design Center’s Cupola Theater. Read the rundown on the winners after the break.
Outstanding New Members of the Trimester: Dan Bayly and Sarah King
Dan has helped the chapter in the past numerous times, and he finally joined in January. Over the past few months, Dan renovated the Hawaii Jaycees’ state office, volunteered at the Kaimuki Easter Egg Hunt game booth, and led the chapter with 50 ducks adopted for the United Cerebral Palsy Association’s Rubber Duckie Race.
Dawn served as RPJ’s sports director in 2009, and she remains an asset not only to the chapter but to the Hawaii Jaycees, too. Her company sponsored the renovation of the Hawaii Jaycees’ state office. Dawn was also Sarah’s co-chair for the game booth, and she even volunteered her rabbit Frankenstein, too. She also attended the CPG workshop with Sarah.
Outstanding Directors of the Trimester: Mike Young and Winston Chow
Mike stepped up to be the sports director this year, and he brought along some of this co-workers, too, as he negotiated the sponsorship of his Sunday volleyball team by the firm he works for. He and Winston also teamed together to purchase and deliver toys and candy to the Koko Head Easter Egg Hunt.
Outstanding Executive Vice President of the Trimester: Jason King
Jason set up our accommodations this year at the Bikini Cantina, and it’s been a cool venue the past few months. He’s also been the voice of parliamentarian reason during board meetings. Jason recruited his wife Sarah (Outstanding New Member of the Trimester), and he’s currently searching for venues for our board and member retreat this summer.
Outstanding Membership Development Vice President of the Trimester: Nathan Martin
Nathan has been wearing two hats since he joined the board this year, and he’s wearing them well. He has stabilized our treasury, and he’s recruited several new members along the way, too. Nathan also served on the planning committee for the First Trimester Convention, and his energy and verve is evident on the volleyball courts and during league announcements.
Outstanding Chapter President of the Trimester: Elvin Berzabal
Chapter presidents aren’t worth a lick without a great team, and Elvin has the pleasure of working with a great group of guys. The board continues to seek out a few more good men and WOMEN to join them.
