Ted Hanna Named 2016 Tigard Shining Stars Chamber Ambassador of the Year

Ted Hanna, Operations Manager of Drive Accounting has been named the 2016 Tigard Shining Stars Chamber Ambassador of the Year.  The Ambassador of the Year Award is presented to an Ambassador volunteer who significantly affects a positive perception of the Chamber through active participation, an optimistic attitude and solid business practices.  The recipient is active, involved, interested, and enthusiastic about making the Tigard Chamber a great organization!  The Tigard Chamber Ambassadors are a volunteer group of chamber members who manage weekly a.m. networking, Speed Networking and Holiday Happy Hour.  They extend the capabilities of the chamber to deliver services to members in addition to paid staff.  Without the Ambassadors, the chamber could not have the impact it does for its members.  Ted has been an Ambassador since August of 2013 and has taken an active role as an Ambassador and as Secretary for the group.   Ted has been the Secretary to three Chairs of the Ambassador Group. For each he has proved to be the connection between the leadership of the team and the team itself. He also has recruited visitors to the Chamber and always has something great to say about the Chamber. He has stepped up whenever asked, volunteers to a commitment level he can hold true to, and provides a top quality Ambassador experience for everyone he interacts with.  Ted is a wonderful example of what an Ambassador should be:  Dependable – Whatever Ted volunteers for he is always present and happy to be there and can be relied upon to perform his role. On Task – Ted keeps the Ambassador group in order with his skills as Secretary, making sure the team knows what their assignments are, taking notes at monthly meetings and getting them out as soon as the meeting is over.   In addition he sends reminders about upcoming meetings and events, ensuring Ambassadors are there to perform their duties.  With a group of all volunteers this is key to helping the team perform well for its weekly networking duties. Positive – Ted’s input to the group is always well thought out and delivered diplomatically and in a positive manner.  His feedback is respected by the team. Please join us in congratulating Ted on this well-deserved award.  His award will be formally presented with other Tigard volunteer and business awards at Tigard’s 2016 Shining Stars Community Awards Celebration, sponsored by Title Sponsors Center Street Gold & Silver and HomeStreet Bank (King City) and held on Friday, April 29th from 5:30-9 p.m. at Embassy Suites – Washington Square, event location host.
