16th Annual Board Installation & Awards Dinner - Feb 2017 Western New York Chapter

The WNY Chapter of NYSCAR held their 16th Annual Board Installation and Awards Dinner at Acqua Restaurant and Banquets.  Almost 200 people attended this premier event to witness the swearing in ceremonies for the 2017 Officers and Board of Directors along with the presentation of the transaction awards. Three additional awards were presented to individuals who have made significant contributions to the region.  Recently retired, Nancy Dobson, was given a President's Award to recognize her accomplishments at Uniland Development over the past 42 years.  Meritorious Service honors were presented to Tom Dee, Erie Canal Harbor Development Corporation and the C. Stuart Hunt Lifetime Achievement Award was given to Jim Geiger of McGuire Development.

A special thank you to our generous sponsors who made this event so successful.  We are pleased that a portion of the proceeds go towards the WNY NYSCAR Real Estate Development Scholarships at the University of Buffalo.
