Volunteer of the Year Announced
Congratulations to John Lloyd, President of Tech Tree Experts of Blacksburg, VA, our 2011 Volunteer of the Year! John is a longtime champion of the TREE Fund and its predecessor, the ISA Research Trust. He served multiple terms on the Boards of both agencies and was named TREE Fund Trustee Emeritus in 2008. He remains an active volunteer and fundraiser for the foundation. John has organized local fundraisers, golfed in countless outings, sponsored TREE Fund special events and recruited others to do the same, and is never too busy to call a major donor with a thank you. He is a fixture at the Raise Your Hand for Research auctions, soliciting donations, inciting bidding rivalries and selling raffle tickets non-stop. John will receive the Ken Ottman Volunteer of the Year Award and its signature commemorative beer stein during the MAC-ISA 2011 annual conference in Williamsburg in October. He’ll probably fill it with a martini. Thank you, John, for all you do for the TREE Fund!
