Congratulations to the AMA Houston Volunteer of the Year – April Lundy!
“Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart.”
We always knew April Lundy is a superstar. As Savage’s ace IT Manager, she keeps us connected and current on the latest technology and systems that help us perform our jobs. Now we are so proud that the American Marketing Association (AMA) Houston Chapter, at the Annual AMA Houston Crystal Awards, recognized April’s contributions to the organization as its 2017-18 Volunteer of the Year.
The annual award is one of the organization’s highest individual honors and rewards a chapter volunteer’s ongoing leadership and success. The Houston Chapter is the largest in the nation and is currently recognized as the Gold Chapter of the Year, which is the highest honor among AMA’s 76 professional chapters.
April has been an AMA Volunteer for more than three years and has shared her IT talents in mastering the A/V presentations at monthly luncheons, has served on several committees, and is currently a member of the Board and Director of the Chapter Excellence Awards submission. Most recently, April served as Judging Chair of the 2018 Crystal Awards.
“I am so honored to receive this recognition from my AMA family,” said April. “As an AMA volunteer, I am proud to work with amazing and talented individuals who elevate the chapter with excellent programming and a strong message of inclusion. We have the best network of marketing professionals in the country. Thank you AMA.”
Savage’s Managing Director Brandy Beverly said April always makes time to help others, at Savage and by volunteering.
“We are very proud of April and her commitment to sharing her talents to help others and to be a dedicated volunteer,” said Brandy. “Savage supports our people and our profession through organizations like AMA and Conscious Capitalism, among others. It’s the spirit and skills of our Savage team that help these organizations thrive.”
