Sandy Gaston receives GWRRA Senior Director Award



Congratulations, Sandy! 

Arizona Chapter P is honored to have as our Chapter Director, Sandy Gaston, the newest recipient of the “GWRRA Senior Director Award!” 

Well done, Sandy… and well deserved!

Sandy has been the Chapter Director (CD) of Arizona Chapter P for almost nine years…continuous!  (Has anyone been a CD longer?)  For those of you who don’t know it, the “normal” tenure for a CD is three years; Sandy seems “headed for a triple!” 

Achieving this award is not easy; the criteria include:

  • Appearance represents pride in GWRRA (wears 10” patch)

  • Is recognized as a positive role model by their peers

  • Is well-respected, personable, and recognized by peers as an outstanding officer

  • Is MEMBER focused with a demonstrated record of service to the Association

  • Is capable of managing disgruntled members or leadership issues with fairness and integrity

  • Is supportive in administration of GWRRA goals, policies and procedures

  • Has implemented the teaching of the OCP and participated in other development training

  • Has achieved low member expiration ratios, high growth and the elimination of “phantom” nonmembers.

Sandy has excelled in all criteria.  Chuck Liberty, Arizona District Director who presented the award to Sandy on August 22, 2015 had nothing but glowing comments for the energy she puts into her meetings.  Most CDs conduct their meetings in a calm serious manner with little fanfare.  That’s OK and gets the job done, but Sandy puts energy into her chapter meetings!  She’s always joking and waving her hands, has games and prizes each meeting, teases and plays with her members, recognizes anyone who puts any effort into the chapter, and just provides an atmosphere so that, when you leave, you have a smile on your face.  She’s a great Chapter Director and deserves this award!
