The Krystal La Reese-Gaule Annual Membership Award will be presented to the member who sponsors the most new NAC (Full) memberships during 2015. The competition is currently wide open with only two months to go and the Association is encouraging ALL members to participate in order to stimulate new member growth and continue Krystal’s legacy.
The winner will be provided a free registration to the 2016 Concession & Hospitality Expo slated for July 19-22 at the Depot Renaissance in Minneapolis as well as a stunning trophy memorializing Krystal’s tireless efforts for NAC.
Tish Hardric of Great Western Products once again captured the Award for 2014. Hardric and Adam Gottlieb, ACS of CCSI were named the co-recipients of the inaugural award for 2013.
The award is established in memory of former NAC Board Member and industry friend Krystal La Reese-Gaule, who passed away due to illness in early 2013. As an active NAC member since 1996 and a great advocate for the Association, Krystal had sponsored numerous new members for which she received the Ruby, Sapphire and Four-Point Diamond pin designation. At the time of her passing, she was on the verge of reaching Double Diamond status, a designation that only a few have achieved in the history of NAC.
Following a career in concessions management with GKC Theatres, Krystal joined Kernel Season’s popcorn seasoning as its National Sales Manager in 2005. Known for her warmth, contagious smile and outgoing personality, she was a natural salesperson and quickly made a name for herself in the concession and movie theatre industries.
The Award is sponsored by Kernel Seasons who employed Krystal for so many years.
