Recipient of Paul Johnson Service Award Announced
Larry Nalitt, DDS, AFAAID, has been named the recipient of the 2014 Paul Johnson Service Award. The award recognizes outstanding service to AAID as exemplified by the late Dr. Paul Johnson. It is intended to acknowledge the work of AAID volunteers who have gone “over and above” and highlight that much of the success of AAID is due to the hard work of committed volunteers. Any AAID member, with the exception of national officers, who volunteers for any AAID committee, task force, district, or meeting, is eligible to be considered for the award. The criteria established for the Award suggests that the recipient:
• Consistently participated at the committee, district level with thoughtful contributions
• Prepared for meetings by reviewing materials, participated in discussions
• Could be counted on to follow-through on any and all assignments
• Consistently went “over and above” on volunteer activities or projects
• Set an example for the rest of the volunteers
The Board of Trustees delegated to staff the responsibility to choose the recipient. Dr. Nalitt was chosen from a half-dozen nominees. He exemplified the spirit of this award through his support of AAID’s social media efforts. As a member of the Public Relations Committee this past year, Dr. Nalitt and all members of that committee as well as the Board of Trustees were encouraged to become active in AAID’s social media efforts, particularly on Facebook. Dr. Nalitt took this to heart and became one of the top five “influencers” on AAID social media channels. He even was more active than all other members of the PR Committee and Board of Trustees combined. He did this by “liking” posts and sharing them with his own Facebook friends. He periodically commented on postings by AAID or others. He was active in his participation on the Public Relations Committee. Previously, he served on the Membership Committee for two years, where his comments and suggestions led to the implementation of a number of new initiatives designed to gain more members for the Academy.
