Henry Beck was chosen as recipient of the SE Chapter’s President’s Award for 2015/2016 due to his tireless commitment to ensure success of the 2016 SE/IAATI joint training seminar.
As 2nd Vice President Henry Beck was charged with the duties of Conference Chairman. The SE Site Selection Committee had planned to host the 2016 conference near Baltimore, Maryland; however, due to unforeseen circumstances beyond anyone’s control those plans were scrapped at the last minute and a new location of Nashville, Tennessee was chosen. This sudden turn of events left less than a year for the planning, organizing, and implementation of the 2016 conference.
Weekly planning meetings, endless conference calls, and dogged pursuit of instructors were all part of his duties. He carefully negotiated with instructors to obtain commitments and maintained constant communications to ensure all those commitments were fulfilled. In addition to the duties of Conference Chairman, Henry also served on the Site Selection Committee.
Henry’s continued commitment, his attention to detail, and his determination to ensure the 2016 conference was a huge success contributed to both the SE as well as the International.
Henry embodies the leadership qualities we seek and he is certainly prepared to guide the SE Chapter to a successful future.
