Mary E. Power recognized by American Society of Association Executives
Alexandria, Va. – The executive director of the HR Certification Institute, Mary E. Power, CAE, has been chosen to receive the 2008
Women Who Advance Excellence in Associations Award this fall.
Power is one of two female association executives who will be recognized during the
In Honor of Women education program and awards luncheon on Nov. 19, 2008, at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington, Virginia.
The award is presented annually by the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) and The Center for Association Leadership’s Greater Washington Network. It recognizes female executives in the Washington, D.C., region who have “set the standard of excellence in their professional lives through their leadership, mentoring, and career advancement,” and who have made a defining impact on the local association community.
“Receiving this award will mark a triple honor for me, coming on the heels of our global rebranding campaign launched in late June, and achieving 100,000 certified HR professionals by year’s end,” said Power.
Power joined the HR Certification Institute last August and is responsible for strategic planning and global expansion of certification programs. Her career includes more than 20 years of experience in the hospitality industry and in association volunteer leadership. Power has been recognized by top industry organizations, including the New York Society of Association Executives, for her association management work.
Also honored will be Joan Cutlip-Spivey, director of business development at Tourisme Montreal, based in Washington.
“Power and Cutlip-Spivey have exemplified their commitment to the association community throughout their careers,” said ASAE President and CEO John H. Graham IV, CAE. “We rely on leadership of our volunteers and both Power and Cutlip-Spivey have contributed much of their time to our organization and other nonprofits and associations around the country. We are fortunate to have them as part of our greater community.”
Also being honored at the November luncheon are Michelle Fenty, First Lady, District of Columbia; and Shawn Yancy, a co-anchor of Washington’s FOX 5 News.
