Letter from SEACT President

Winter 2016-2017

Wow, where has the year gone??

 The year of 2016 brought some great changes to SEACT.

  • This year we gave out four Bill Mustard Scholarships to our members. This is a competitive process – an applicant is required to fill out the application which requires a signature from their employer; as well as attend our Chapter Board meeting at the International conference.
    • ACT International Conference – Portland, Oregon
      This year we were excited to have more applicants than in previous years, so you can imagine the SEACT Board had a tough decision. The recipients of this year’s scholarships were:

      • Jenny Halsey – TJCOG Council of Governments, NC
        Anne Galamb – City of Raleigh, NC
        Stanton Higgs – The TMA Group, TN
    • TDM Summit – Boston MA
      This was the first year for the TDM Summit, the recipient of the scholarship was:

      • Christi Turner – Red Hat, Inc., Raleigh, NC – Christi is a new ACT member representing as an employer.

We thank everyone who submitted strong applications.

  • President’s Award – This year the President’s Award went to Daniel Deanda, West Florida Regional Planning Council. Because of Dan’s commitment to ACT and SEACT he put a lot of work into the Portland Awards Ceremony, with a Mardi Gras splash to get us excited about New Orleans 2017.
  • Each year SEACT budgets $1,000 to sponsor Local and Regional Events to help members host events. Members are asked to send a letter to the SEACT Board requesting up to $500.00 maximum.
