Denise Christescu with Westbrook Village Apts/K&D
Receives NOACC’s Bright Star Award for 2012
The Chamber Bright Stars for 2012 were recognized on Thursday, October 25th at the semi-annual Chamber Leadership meeting and fifth annual Bright Star Awards presentation of the Northern Ohio Area Chambers of Commerce (NOACC) at the Great Lakes Science Center in Cleveland, Ohio.
The recipient for the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce was Denise Christescu with Westbrook Village Apts/K&D. Denise has been a very active member since she joined the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce several years ago. When the Chamber was looking for new Board members this year, Denise stepped up to fill this vacancy. She has put forth a lot of work and effort over the past several years to assure the Chamber and its various events were a success. Denise has volunteered at all of our events, including Taste of Brooklyn and our Joint Golf outing. She has spent countless hours this past year on our “Picnic in the Park” community event, to organize volunteers, donate printing, and gather sponsorships, to name a few. Denise is always willing and eager to donate her time and support the Chamber and the Brooklyn community.
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.
These volunteers represent a wide range of involvement with their respective chambers, some having been a member and or officer or committee chairman for 20+ years and some being newly involved but each of whom has given freely of his/her time, working hard for their chambers without any expectations.
This is the fifth 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.
