CAREY—Commercial Savings Bank’s Carey Branch Manager Trisha DeAmicis recently received the Bright Star 2011 Award from the Northern Ohio Area Chamber of Commerce.
Almost 50 chambers of commerce across northern Ohio nominated a person from their chamber as their “Bright Star,” to recognize a chamber member who has “made a significant impact on the chamber through membership, retention, sponsorship, economic development, operations and/or education.” Each Bright Star is an active chamber member for no less than two years and is likely to be an unsung hero or a dedicated behind-the-scenes volunteer.
Trisha is a long-serving member of the Carey Chamber of Commerce. Those nominating Trisha said, “Trisha, our longest-serving member, does a fine job organizing every event she chairs and always volunteers when we need help. She has a great can-do attitude and is our go-to person for events. She does all this while balancing family life and memberships in several other organizations. If all the members worked like Trisha did, there would be no need for a director.”
Trisha’s efforts were recognized at the NOACC event in Cleveland and by the Carey Chamber of Commerce at a local chamber dinner event.
This is the fourth year for the Bright Star Awards, and again has given an opportunity to recognize these volunteers among their peer groups, as chamber representatives, board members and spouses were also in attendance.
Wayne Lawrence, NOACC Chairman was pleased that this opportunity allowed the chambers and their communities to give these “Bright Stars” the thanks they deserve for everything they do to help their chambers succeed.
