Passing the Gavel

Karen Passing the Gavel to SamSam has been a part of NAHAD for many years, having served on the board first as a manufacturer, and then again most recently as a distributor through his role with Singer Equities. The following is an excerpt from Sam’s remarks at the recent 35th Annual Convention.

Karen’s done a terrific job leading the NAHAD organization the past year. Her passion for the industry and the NAHAD organization shines through everything she’s done. I would like to thank Karen for her leadership. I would also like to thank Molly Mullins and her team. Molly’s a rock star and she’s assembled a group of talented individuals that never rest. The programs that they maintain and the new ones that were announced at this year’s convention are a few examples of what they’ve accomplished. Until you serve on the board you never really understand how much time and energy is put into this convention and our organization.
