This year Alan McDonald was the Chairman of the Waikato/Bay of Plenty IOQ branch. He has come along way (in personal development) since he took on this role two years ago.
As the national conference is in Waikato this year, Alan has grasped the role of chairman of the local branch, as well as the chairman of the subcommittee for the annual conference.
He has put a lot of hard work and personal time into making sure that this year’s conference is a great success. He has certain gone beyond the call of duty to make this happen despite being very hard and stressful on him at some stages through this year.
We agreed that Alan was a fitting candidate to win the RD Hassed Memorial Trophy.
