Tish Hardric, Sales Manager/ Movie Foods Division at Great Western Products, was recently presented with the prestigious Double Diamond Pin signifying that she has sponsored 20 new NAC members. With this accomplishment, Hardric becomes one of only seven individuals to reach this lofty status in the 70 year history of NAC.
(Hardric is seen in the photo receiving her pin from Mark Hamilton, ACE, of Great Western Products.)
Although only a member since August 2013, Hardric has been an extremely active and valuable member and advocate for the Association. In July 2014, she was named a co-recipient of the inaugural Krystal La Reese-Gaule Membership Award along with Adam Gottlieb, ACS, of CCSI. The annual award is presented to the member who sponsors the most new NAC memberships during the most recent fiscal year.
Other members who have reached this milestone include John Evans (4 Diamonds); Skip Stefansen (3 Diamonds); Frank Liberto; Chris Bigelow; Larry Etter, CCM, and Adam Gottlieb, ACS.
Sponsorship of a new member entails encouraging and recruiting fellow individuals within the concession industry to become full members of NAC. Current members are encouraged to actively participate in finding and fostering prospective members as the Association closes out what has been a tremendous growth year.
