  • Associate of the 4th Quarter 2015

    Sarah Raleigh presentation

    Sarah Raleigh of Jacuzzi Luxury Bath

    Sarah is an Associate member truly worthy of accolade, having only joined the Association in January of 2014, Sarah hit the ground running, immediately signing up for the BRANNJ Associates, Programs and Golf Committees. Then one year later, starting her second year of membership, she asked to be appointed to NJBA’s Associates and Member Services Committee as well as the Convention Committee. Her participation on both of these NJBA committees has been noteworthy, to say the least. Sara was an eager and active participant on multiple subcommittees focused both on Associate issues and member recruitment & services. Her participation on the Convention Committee was what led the Chairs of that committee to select her for the 2015 Chairman’s Award. Sarah, in her short time as a member, has already been recognized at both the state and local level with various awards because she gives equally of her time, talent and treasures always being the first to volunteer for local events and the ABC.  She is also an ABC sponsor and has sponsored multiple events and programs at her local.  Congratulations to Sarah for a very well deserved honor.
