News You Can't Use: Congratulations Mary Power

Congratulations to Mary Power, executive director of the HR Certification Institute.

She has been chosen by by American Society of Association Executives to receive the 2008 Women Who Advance Excellence in Associations Award.

The award recognizes female executives in the Washington, D.C., region who have “set the standard of excellence in their professional lives through their leadership, mentoring, and career advancement,” and who have made a defining impact on the local association community.

“Receiving this award will mark a triple honor for me, coming on the heels of our global rebranding campaign launched in late June, and achieving 100,000 certified HR professionals by year’s end,” said Power.

Power joined the HR Certification Institute last August and is responsible for strategic planning and global expansion of certification programs. Her career includes more than 20 years of experience in the hospitality industry and in association volunteer leadership.

The ceremony takes place November 19 in Arlington, Va.
