The winners were selected from a distinguished group of nominees and received their commemorative awards at the EWGA annual national conference on April 20, 2012 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
“Given the wealth of talent each individual possesses, as well as their achievements, leadership skills and passion to support the EWGA, the selection process was indeed a challenging one,” said EWGA CEO Pam Swensen. “We are grateful to these outstanding people, who enrich the experiences of sister members and who make EWGA the unparalleled professional and personal networking organization for women.”
"I've run my own company for 20 years and I thought I knew what it meant to be a leader. But it wasn't until I joined EWGA in 2005 and the army of volunteers that keep this organization running and vibrant did I truly comprehend the definition. EWGA has opened so many doors that I've walked through with the help of my fellow board members to support new ideas to grow our chapter. Since joining I've met women who are incredibly accomplished, positive, who love the game of golf and aren't afraid to push past boundaries. They've taught me so many valuable lessons and to be nominated in their company and then win this award is truly an honor that I will treasure forever. I am so grateful to the EWGA leadership and thank you”, says Sherry Bruck, president of Harquin Creative Group.
The EWGA commends all the nominees for their achievements, the high regard in which they are held by their peers, and the dedication they exemplify. We celebrate the many successes that have been achieved within each Chapter and within the EWGA as a whole.
