Congratulations to the PCMA Southeast Chapter 2017 Volunteer of the Year: Amy Clark, HelmsBriscoe


Brenda Dempsey, Director, Southern Regional Office for the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corporation announced the Volunteer of the Year for the Chapter at our recent holiday networking program at the Georgia Aquarium. Amy Clark, Southeast Managing Director for HelmsBriscoe, was the honored recipient.

“Amy was one of the first member volunteers of the newly formed membership committee in 2016, and has continued to provide assistance wherever she can. From the onset of Amy’s joining PCMA SE, she has asked to be involved with the Chapter in a more significant way. Amy is always dependable for reporting her monthly renewal contacts and often addresses questions that a member may have, or takes the time to resolve whatever may have resulted from that contact with a member. Amy participates in our chapter’s Member Orientations and assists at registration at our Programs, recruiting new members and ensuring membership retention. Amy attends each of our events and is often networking on behalf of the Chapter and Membership Committee,” said Chris Colbert, Director of Membership for the Chapter.

Amy has recently expanded her involvement to include the role of Membership Director for the chapter, beginning in 2018.

Current Chapter President, Barbara Stroup remarked, “Amy is definitely a positive example of a member who is actively involved and always looking for opportunities to be an asset.”

Amy’s summation on this prestigious award, “It’s very gratifying to be recognized by your peers. My work with PCMA in the past two years has been educational, inspiring, and FUN! Serving on the Membership Committee under the direction of Chris Colbert was a wonderful way to contribute to the overall health of the chapter. I look forward to leading this committee, along with the hard work of my fellow committee volunteers, to continued success in 2018.”

Thank you Visit Music City and the Nashville Convention & Visitors Corporation for sponsoring the PCMA Southeast Chapter Volunteer of the Quarter and The Year program.
