The Co-Founders of the ACC NCR Leadership Academy.
The project was launched in 2015 by then-President Rob Falk and initially led by previous ACC NCR Service Award recipient Evan Stolove. Over a period of two years, approximately two dozen ACC NCR members invested a lot of thought, hard work, care, and time into the Academy. At this time, we want to recognize Co-Chairs Constantine Athanas and Mona Mahoney, as well as Cynthia Boyle, Margaret Hackbarth, Kenneth Pollack, Zachary Stewart, Maria Votsch, Luise Welby, and Nichole Williams-Miller who served on the Academy Steering Committee from the start to the present.
We will also mark the chapter’s 40th anniversary and toast to our 2020 Annual Relationship Sponsors and to our Reception Sponsors: FH&H and Thompson Coburn. Additional details, including a link to the online event, will be provided in a reminder email to all who are registered for the event.
