It recognizes members who have consistently contributed to MACCA through “behind the scenes” leadership and participation on committees, networks, presentations, or conferences. It also recognizes individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to the field through human service related career programming and/or the provision of effective career services to under-served populations, nationally or internationally. Recipients in the past have been acknowledged for outstanding service, concern, or support within MACCA, the community, or professionally.
2016 Recipient ~ Teal Golden
Teal was fortunate to attend the 2015 MACCA conference. Little did she know that she would be elected to become a board member. She became involved as the Concurrent Sessions Coordinator and has been responsible for communicating the Call for Proposals, as well as organizing the concurrent sessions for the conference.
While serving as the main point of contact for the concurrent sessions presenters, she has enjoyed working with the committee members to plan for the 2016 conference.
Teal is a valued member of the MACCA community and we look forward to her continuing to play a role in MACCA.
