April is National Volunteer Month, a month dedicated to recognizing the importance of volunteers and honoring the important contributions they make.

While the pandemic has limited gatherings and our opportunity to formally recognize the following award winners in person, we applaud them for their commitment to their communities, the association industry, CAI and the New England Chapter.
"Communities around New England rely on skilled, committed and dedicated volunteers. These deserving award recipients have distinguished themselves by their selfless pursuit of community and association goals, particularly during a period of extreme, and heretofore unforeseen, pressures and challenges. I extend my congratulations to all 2020 award recipients."
