Claire Hicks, M.D., Four Seasons Compassion for Life, Named Physician of the Year by Association for Home and Hospice Care of North Carolina

Claire Hicks MD

RALEIGH, N.C., April 28, 2015 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Claire Hicks, M.D., with Four Seasons Compassion for Life, Flat Rock, has been named 2015 Physician of the Year by the Association for Home and Hospice Care of North Carolina.

The award is presented annually to a North Carolina physician who has demonstrated a philosophical commitment to the assistance of home care or hospice patients who wish to remain at home during serious illness or at end of life.

To qualify for the award, the physician has to actively support the aims and objectives of home care and hospice, according to Four Seasons Chief Medical Officer Janet Bull, who was present for the presentation.

“Dr. Hicks is a proven physician leader deserving of this recognition,” she says. “Her role as a functioning and practicing member of the home hospice team remains a key to the quality of care to which Four Seasons is committed. Her contributions to our organization’s diversity awareness, her interest and training in narrative medicine, patient advocacy and staff mentorship are all exceptional.”

The award was presented to Hicks by AHHC President and CEO Timothy Rogers at a luncheon yesterday during the 43rd Annual Convention and Expo at the Sheraton Imperial Hotel and Convention Center in the Research Triangle Park.

“I always bring a deep sense of curiosity about who I’m caring for to my work,” Hicks explains. “I want to know how the patient and family got where they are in terms of their illness and lives.”

Patients living with a serious illness or approaching end of life require a particular type of attention in her role as a home care physician, she says.

“I’m interested in finding out what they need from me as they move toward death, creating a space where they can be afraid or fearful, being as attentive as I can, finding out what their needs are and meeting them.”

Most recently, Hicks has introduced narrative medicine, the healing power of story, into her work with hospice patients and staff. She considers the art of listening to a patient’s story to be as important a skill as pain management.

“Every encounter with every patient, how one practices the art of medicine, is a creative process,” Hicks says. “Figuring out how to meet peoples’ needs is how that creativity comes.”

The Physician of the Year award is the second state recognition garnered by Four Seasons Compassion for Life yesterday. N.C. House Resolution 842, “Honor Hendersonville Hospice,” was sponsored by Representatives Chuck McGrady (R-District 117) and Chris Whitmire (R-District 113). Read from the floor of the House last evening, the resolution honored the memory of western North Carolina visionary and volunteer hospice founder Jean Moulthrop Hoogstra, and the exceptional contributions of Four Seasons Compassion for Life.

About Four Seasons:

Four Seasons Compassion for Life – http://www.fourseasonscfl.org – is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization with a dedicated team of health care professionals, social workers, spiritual care professionals and volunteers deeply committed to its mission of “Co-Creating The Care Experience.” Nationally known for its leadership in innovative, quality hospice and palliative care services, and serving western North Carolina, Four Seasons is a former Circle of Life award recipient by the American Medical Association.

Laguna College of Art and Design Announces Jonathan Burke Endowed Presidential Scholarship in Celebration of 35th Anniversary

Jonathan Burke

LAGUNA BEACH, Calif., April 27, 2015 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Laguna College of Art and Design (LCAD) announced the Jonathan Burke Endowed Presidential Scholarship commemorating Burke’s 35 years with the college.

“In my experience, LCAD is the finest of any and all art schools in offering the depth and meaning of representational and figurative art,” said American Figurative Painter Jerome Witkin. “This is Jonathan Burke’s monument and great gift to our culture.”

Named by NIKE as one of the top three design schools in the world, LCAD is closely partnered with Blizzard Entertainment, Disney Animation, DreamWorks, FOX, Hurley International, VANS, Warner Brothers Animation and more.

“LCAD has grown in large part due to Jonathan,” said F. Scott Hess, American representational painter and LCAD Fine Art faculty member. “He had the foresight and stubbornness to hang onto representational art when it wasn’t popular, and it has paid off.”

From 1985 to 2011, Burke was dean of fine arts, co-vice president of Academic Affairs and gallery director at LCAD. Burke oversaw the donation of the Rex and Joan Irving Brandt Papers to LCAD in 2011, which is now available online through Project Gado. In 2013, the Suzanne Chonette Senior Studios opened as state-of-the-art workspace for seniors.

“Everyone should realize that we live in an environment created by artists, whether its products we use, what we see at the movies, what’s on our computer screens or art in galleries and museums,” said Burke. “Artists are there to make the world a more interesting and beautiful place.”

Burke holds a B.F.A. degree in painting from Kansas City Art Institute and M.F.A. degree in painting from Boston University, with post-graduate studies at Skowhegan and New York Studio School. Additional information about the Burke 35th Celebration may be found at http://www.lcad.edu/.

Weitz and Luxenberg’s Bilsborrow Will Attend AAJ Leadership Academy

James Bilsborrow

NEW YORK, N.Y., April 22, 2015 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Attorney James Bilsborrow, of Weitz & Luxenberg P.C., is one of a dozen lawyers from around the nation chosen to participate this year in an American Association for Justice (AAJ) training academy to develop promising new leaders of the legal profession, the law firm today announced.

Bilsborrow will attend the AAJ’s Leadership Academy between May and October – at sessions first in Dallas, then in Montreal, and finally in the District of Columbia, the law firm indicated.

“This is a tremendous honor and I’m excited to participate,” said Bilsborrow, an associate in Weitz & Luxenberg’s Environmental, Toxic Tort & Consumer Protection Unit.

“The Leadership Academy will be a great opportunity for me to develop my strengths and emerge better equipped to advocate for our clients and our causes,” he added.

Bilsborrow Among AAJ’s Best, Brightest:

Each year the Leadership Academy selects up to 16 plaintiffs’ lawyers with diverse personal and professional backgrounds, Weitz & Luxenberg explains.

The participants are invariably among the AAJ’s best and brightest members, the law firm notes.

Leadership Academy consists of three two-day workshops, each designed to cultivate in younger attorneys the qualities possessed by seasoned movers and shakers at the top tiers of the field of law, Weitz & Luxenberg said.

Among other topics, the workshops cover how to develop emotional intelligence, increase self-awareness, and adapt to the changing nature of leadership itself, according to the law firm.

Weitz & Luxenberg said that, in the first workshop, Bilsborrow and his colleagues will – among other things – explore how to be a truly powerful communicator as well as how to create compelling strategic visions that others can enthusiastically rally around.

In the second workshop, the emphasis will shift away from the individual to the team. Specifically, Bilsborrow and the others will work on honing their collaborative skills, the law firm said.

The final workshop will help the participants improve their prowess as influencers – an especially valuable skill for attorneys who go to bat for their clients in court, as Bilsborrow often does, Weitz & Luxenberg said.

Joined Weitz & Luxenberg in 2011:

Bilsborrow’s experience as an advocate for his clients is noteworthy, said the law firm, particularly his work as second-chair to Robin Greenwald representing plaintiffs against petroleum giant BP, the British corporation responsible for the devastating 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

Currently, Bilsborrow is representing innocent consumers against General Motors Corp., which is being sued for a dangerous ignition-switch defect that affected millions of automobiles, Weitz & Luxenberg said.

Admitted to practice law in New York, Bilsborrow joined Weitz & Luxenberg in 2011 after earlier clerking for Hon. Christopher C. Conner of the U.S. District Court, Middle District of Pennsylvania, and then for Hon. D. Brooks Smith of the U.S. Third Circuit Court of Appeals, Weitz & Luxenberg said.

The law firm said Bilsborrow studied at William & Mary School of Law and distinguished himself by graduating second in his class.

In addition to belonging to the AAJ, Bilsborrow is a member of the American Bar Assn., New York Bar Assn., and the American Constitution Society, according to Weitz & Luxenberg.

About Weitz & Luxenberg:

Weitz & Luxenberg P.C. is among the nation’s leading and most readily recognized personal injury and consumer protection law firms. Weitz & Luxenberg’s numerous litigation areas include: mesothelioma, defective medicine and devices, environmental pollutants, products liability, consumer protection, accidents, personal injury, and medical malpractice. Victims of consumer fraud are invited to rely on Weitz & Luxenberg’s more than 25 years of experience handling such cases.

Family Review Center Editor, Rita Brenke said, “I have followed and reviewed for this author for the entire series of Sir Licksalot books. I think they are absolutely fantastic. Now that I have an avid reader at home, these chapter books are honestly her favorite. She does not read them just once, she reads them multiple times and she is not short on books in her personal library. I am honored to be able to offer reviews of such a wonderful series, and I encourage you to check them out.”

An interview with Star Award winner, D.L. Carroll is published in the 2015 Awards Edition of the Family Review Center’s Magazine.

Family Review Center has been serving families and businesses since 2000. It is our goal, purpose and passion to connect our viewers with the latest and greatest products to hit the market. If a product is family friendly and worthy of attention and consideration for purchase, we will do our best to feature it within the Review Center.

“I am humbled to have been chosen for this prestigious Star Award, said D.L. Carroll. “Having the knowledge that the company’s editor shared my books with her loved one, is the ultimate reward.”

Author D.L. Carroll and illustrator Teri Cuneo made a guest appearance at Briarwood Elementary School on Read Across America Day (Dr. Seuss’s Birthday). Across the country, thousands of schools, libraries, and community centers participated by bringing together students and books. Principal, Mrs. Jezyk remarked, “We here at Briarwood are excited and honored to have D.L. Carroll, author of the ‘Sir Licksalot’ Series, visit our school to help us celebrate. Ms. Carroll will be meeting with small groups to read a little from her books, discuss her creative process, talk about the publishing process, and answer student questions.”

In a statement made by Author D.L. Carroll, “This has been one really exciting year and it just started. We were absolutely delighted to have the opportunity to share the ‘Sir Licksalot’ books in person with the 380 students. As I read the first couple of chapters from the first book, Teri drew the scene. The students were engaged and full of questions during the Q&A session. This is what life is all about – writing to ignite a child’s desire to read, putting smiles on faces, leaving paw prints on hearts, and encouraging the next generation to achieve their dreams.”

Each book in the series is a fast paced thrilling adventure. The characters have very distinctive personalities and behaviors that mirror readers and their friends. The stories all have a magical destination and include friendship, conflict, mystery, imagination, and most importantly relatable language.

The books are written for reluctant and hi-low readers. What is special about this series is that the language is simple. The reader doesn’t have to re-read the sentence a couple of times to comprehend it. The chapters are short so the reader can retain what has been read. In addition, each book has a message. Readers find themselves learning new things without even realizing they are being taught.

“This year we were struck by the level of innovation we saw, with 40 new additions to the HW TECH100,” stated Jacob Gaffney, executive editor at HousingWire. “That speaks to how much change is taking place in the mortgage industry overall right now; we’re seeing a lot of market disruption, and technology providers are clearly taking advantage of the opportunity that creates.”

OpenClose experienced significant growth over the course of the last year, signing several major clients, adding new staff, enhancing existing solutions, and completing some key software initiatives. Increasing demand for OpenClose’s end-to-end LOS platform, correspondent and wholesale solutions were cited as the primary reasons for its growth.

“We’re honored to again be recognized by HousingWire as one of the top technology vendors in the industry for our ongoing achievements,” said JP Kelly, president of OpenClose. “Ultimately, we made the list as a result of our talented, dedicated staff members coupled with the strong relationships we have with our clients who help us constantly innovate and improve on our solutions.”

“Technology is changing both the mortgage and real estate industries in tangible and positive ways,” remarked Paul Jackson, publisher and CEO of HousingWire. “The honorees that are part of the 2015 HW TECH100 are shaping this revolution, helping forge the future of an industry that drives the U.S. economic engine.”

Employer Services Platform

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Dec. 1, 2014 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — EPIC Insurance Brokers and Consultants, a retail property, casualty insurance brokerage and employee benefits consultant, has been ranked #20 among the nation’s top large group employee benefits consultants by Employee Benefit Advisor.

The return on this investment to date has been very gratifying.”

Continued Chris Duncan, EPIC Chief Growth Officer and National Employee Benefits Consulting Practice Leader, “The ACA and the evolution of health care presented a huge opportunity to differentiate EPIC, deliver added value and capture market share – all of which we are doing for the benefit of EPIC’s current and future clients and in support of the EPIC teams across the country who most directly serve them.”

Since The Carlyle Group became the firm’s major investment partner in December 2013, EPIC has completed six strategic acquisitions/purchases, adding nearly 300 employees in 12 new locations across the United States.

ShortSave, Inc. Distressed Mortgage Work Out Solution Wins 2014 Servicing Trailblazer Award

mortgage modification

MONUMENT, Colo., Nov. 25, 2014 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — ShortSave, Inc. (www.Short-Save.com), a mortgage industry technology innovator that helps distressed borrowers work out their loans with their lenders in a matter of days, was awarded the coveted Servicing Trailblazer Award at the 15th Annual Mortgage Technology Awards Ceremony on October 19 in Las Vegas.

The Servicing Trailblazer Award acknowledges a servicer or vendor initiative, product or platform that uses technology to optimize mortgage portfolio management and ensures efficient communication.

ShortSave won against several more established companies because it upends the traditional non-performing loan servicing market. The company’s unique and patent-pending software uses data the lender already has to make near-instant decisions about whether a distressed borrower is eligible for a short sale, loan modification or deed in lieu offer.

“We’re thrilled about receiving this prestigious award and the national recognition that it creates,” says Karl Falk, ShortSave, Inc. co-founder and CEO. “We built ShortSave to allow the borrower to communicate and collaborate with their lender – so everyone wins.”

ShortSave eliminates weeks of worry and indecision, and has the potential to help millions of homeowners – and lenders, who are just as motivated to get non-performing loans off their books as borrowers are to resolve their mortgage troubles.

“With new CFPB guidelines for pre-foreclosure workouts, the old way of doing business will eventually become ancient history,” Falk said. “This award is a testament to the lenders and funds that believed that ShortSave is honestly a better way to do business.”

Since 2000, the Mortgage Technology Awards have been honoring industry innovators. Awards are given in 12 categories. Members of the National Mortgage News and Mortgage Technology editorial staff select winners for each category. Winners are featured in the Fall 2014 issue of Mortgage Technology available online at http://www.nationalmortgagenews.com/mortgage-technology/magazine.html .

About ShortSave, Inc.:

Faster borrower engagement and closings that are months quicker save a non-performing note holders and servicers thousands in lost interest, fees and overhead. Inman Real Estate Connect NY 2014 featured ShortSave Inc. as a New Kid On the Block and recognized the firm as one of “8 Startups that are Changing the Real Estate Game.” Visit http://www.short-save.com/ for more information.

Civic Resource Group Founder and CEO, Gregory G. Curtin, Ph.D. among the winners of the ‘Vision Award’ at the World Economic Summit

Gregory G. Curtin

LOS ANGELES, Calif., Nov. 19, 2014 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Civic Resource Group (CRG) Founder & CEO, Gregory G. Curtin, Ph.D. attended the World Economic Forum Summit on the Global Agenda held in Dubai, United Arab Emirates on November 9 – 12 and as a member of The Future of Government Council was among the winners of the “Vision Award” for the Future of Government Smart Toolbox, a report published in June 2014 that addresses the ways technology can help governments improve services, security, transparency and innovation.

The Vision Award is an inaugural award introduced by the World Economic Forum (WEF) to mark and recognize excellence in two distinctive areas. One is developing breakthrough ideas and the other for examples of high impact collaborative action. According to the Forum, “The Future of Government Smart Toolbox demonstrates how technology can enhance government performance by strengthening efforts to reduce corruption and bureaucracy and enhance political representation, service delivery, trust, leadership, security and innovation. The report highlights successful practices from around the globe in the digital era.”

The Future of Government Council developed the idea of the “Future of Government Smart Toolbox” to “offer governments and other interested sector leaders a guide for restoring trust in government for delivering better services through smart cities, through smart national governments at all levels of government for information societies and economies” said Jane E. Fountain, Distinguished Professor of Political Science and Public Policy and adjunct professor of Computer Science at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, a fellow Vision Award winner and colleague of Dr. Curtin’s on the Global Agenda Council on the Future of Government.

In addition to founding and directing Civic Resource Group, a leading global provider of digital government solutions, Dr. Curtin has been a member of the Future of Government Council since its inception in 2006 and was a major contributor to the Smart Toolbox. Dr. Curtin founded Civic Resource Group to address the real business needs of Public/Civic sector entities in the Digital Age, and with the recent acquisition of Dublin, Ireland, based i3t Mobile, Civic Resource Group is expanding globally with its innovative CivicConnect(TM) SmartGov Platform — a first-of-kind fully integrated Mobile/Cloud/Data First Platform. Dr. Curtin has brought this visionary perspective along with deep digital expertise to the Future of Government Council, one of more than 80 Global Agenda Councils that form the World Economic Forum Global Network.

“The genius of the World Economic Forum is that it brings together a wide variety of experts and practitioners from the private sector, academia, government and civil society to work together collaboratively to address key issues, problems and challenges facing global society today,” said Curtin who has also previously worked in government and academia.

Over its next two year term the Future of Government Council plans to leverage the Smart Toolbox to convene governments from across the globe to learn and share innovative digital strategies and solutions, and to gradually build a Future of Government community. This will be done in concert with World Economic Forum regional meetings in order to extend some of the Future of Government practices and ideas deeper in each region of the globe. There are also tentative discussions around developing a competition or a prize for government innovation.

About Civic Resource Group (CRG):

CRG is one of the world’s leading providers of digital government solutions. CRG provides highly secure mobile Cloud based solutions that touch every facet of citizen’s lives. Since 2000, CRG has been “Fulfilling the promise of technology” for clients in the broad public sector, helping them to harness digital advances to effectively connect with their target audiences.

EPIC’s Jim Gillette Honored as a 2014 Risk and Insurance Retail Industry Power Broker

Jim Gillette SAN MATEO, Calif., Feb. 24, 2014 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — EPIC (Edgewood Partners Insurance Center), a nationally expanding retail property, casualty and employee benefits insurance brokerage, announced today that Jim Gillette has been named as a 2014 Risk and Insurance Retail Industry Power Broker. In addition to Gillette, Kathleen Felderman, managing principal and the leader of EPIC’s national real estate practice, was also recognized as a 2014 Real Estate Industry Power Broker Finalist.

Nominees must be considered a top performer in a particular industry practice sector to qualify for Power Broker consideration. The criteria for evaluating candidates are creative risk-related problem solving, demonstrated industry expertise and a high level of client service.

Gillette was specifically recognized for developing creative risk management, pricing and coverage programs for retailers, wholesalers and product distributors. While negotiating big price decreases isn’t always possible, Gillette has been able to help his clients receive better coverage at the same price and lower their total cost of risk.

Gillette was also recently named as one of only eight “40-Under-40 Regional Broker Leaders in the Western Region” by Business Insurance.

One Gillette client, Ron Calvert, Partner at GHC Group shares, “We are a growing business, at about 10 times the size we were five years ago. Market dynamics have changed, so we no longer have a simple insurance program. I’ve been doing this for 25 years and there is no one I have dealt with who can compare to Jim. He’s been a real asset.”

EPIC’s Kathleen Felderman was also honored as a finalist in the Real Estate Industry Power Broker category. Highly respected in the industry, Felderman has already received the Power Broker Award three times; first in 2008, and then again in 2010, and 2011.

Gillette and Felderman are both EPIC shareholders and principals. Gillette is based in the company’s Los Angeles office where he is managing principal and specializes in risk management, commercial insurance coverage, and merger and acquisition risk.

Ron Fisher, M.D., Honored for Commitment to the Growth of Hospice and Palliative Care in Western North Carolina

Ron Fisher, M.D. SYLVA, N.C., Dec. 19, 2013 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Respected physician and western North Carolina hospice and palliative care pioneer Ron Fisher, M.D., will be honored by Four Seasons Compassion for Life, Highlands, peers and colleagues as he retires as medical director of Med-West Health Systems, Sylva, after 27 years of distinguished service.

An informal, drop in reception will be Tuesday, Jan. 14, 2014, 4:30-7 p.m., at Mountain Trace Nursing Center. An award presentation is slated for 5:30 p.m. in appreciation of Fisher’s commitment to quality hospice and palliative care.

Individuals who would like to recognize Fisher’s contributions are asked to make a donation in his honor to the Hospice House Foundation, Franklin.

“Throughout his long career, Dr. Fisher has elevated the standard of care for persons with serious illnesses and at end of life through his work and focus in palliative care,” says Steve Mills, director of Four Seasons, Highlands.

“He has brought a tremendous passion and compassion to the care of individuals who are dealing with difficult, chronic illnesses,” he says.

Inspired service

Fresh out of medical school at the University of Florida, Fisher arrived in Sylva in 1980 to begin his residency at Mountain Area Health Education Center, commonly known as MAHEC. There, he was inspired by then-medical director “Dick” Walton, M.D. to treat the whole patient, not the symptoms.

“Dr. Walton taught me respect for the total care of the patient, rather than focusing on one specific point, and that perspective followed me all through my career, first and foremost,” Fisher says.

For about 20 years, he remained in family practice, gradually evolving into geriatric and elder care. By 1989, he increasingly focused on patients who needed long term care. Impressed by the work of Dame Cicely Sanders, known as the “mother of hospice care,” Fisher became certified in palliative care as soon as soon as the option became available.

“The work is rewarding: low tech, without a lot of chemistry or instrumentation. It’s very personal one-on-one care,” he says.

Over the years, his commitment to his patients’ care never waned.

“Particularly, I found a place, a kind of calling for end of life care,” he recalls. “I began focusing more and more of my attention toward hospice care, which was then a sub-specialty of palliative care.”

Eventually, Fisher’s practice became fully focused on patients with serious, life limiting illnesses or at end of life.

Legacy of service:

“I really learned and received more from my patients than I ever gave,” Fisher says. “I found I was providing a true service in relieving the patient from suffering, that was very rewarding to me as well as the patient.”

In the field of hospice and palliative care, it’s widely agreed that Dr. Fisher’s early and extensive contributions will have long-lasting impact in WNC.

“Dr. Fisher leaves a lasting legacy because of his commitment to his patients and the care he has provided,” says Mills.

In terms of a legacy for the future, Fisher looks toward the continuation, growth and expansion of palliative care in WNC.

“There’s room for a lot more growth, we’ve barely scratched the surface of the needs for care. If I leave a legacy, it’s my hope to see palliative and hospice care grow,” he says. “If I get a little credit for that, I’ll take it.”

Refocused Priorities:

At 62, Fisher is retiring after facing his own health challenges in the previous year.

“I actually kind-of looked at life from a different perspective as a patient with a serious illness,” he says, citing less energy to put into his practice, and increased fatigue.

The recovery has been long, and he’s still not back to normal.

“Life is short, and I chose to refocus my priorities a little bit, spend more time with family and grandchildren.”

All in all, he’s enjoyed 34 years of professional practice, including his former role as medical director at Skyland Care Center. He feels he’s done well, but that it’s time to “let younger, healthier people take the bull by the horns.”

In the future, Fisher plans to fulfill community roles, practicing in Sylva’s free Good Samaritan Clinic, and remaining in his part-time position as medical director for the Jackson County Department of Public Health.

To date, Fisher also remains active on the board of directors for the Hospice House Foundation of WNC, Franklin. Currently, he is committed to a capital campaign to match a $1 million grant from North Carolina State Employees’ Credit Union by fall 2014. Individuals who would like to recognize Fisher’s contributions to palliative care are asked donate in his name to the Hospice House Foundation, Franklin.

For more information about the reception honoring Ron Fisher, M.D., contact Four Seasons Compassion for Life, Highlands, http://www.fourseasonscfl.org/ .

The event is Tuesday, Jan. 14, 2014, 4:30-7 p.m., at Mountain Trace Nursing Center, 417 Mountain Trace Road, with the award presentation at 5:30 p.m. To donate to the Hospice House Foundation, Franklin, in Fisher’s honor, visit http://hhfwnc.org/ .

The Xtreme Lip-Shaper(R) System is easy to use and produces noticeable results in two minutes; results last for hours.

In fact, there’s even a term for using it – CandyLipping.

Dr. Ho adds that the patent-pending design of her invention means that other companies can’t deliver the same product or results.

Kline, have been honored by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences with a Primetime Emmy(R) Engineering Award for Outstanding Achievement in Engineering Development.

DAX CEO Patrick Macdonald-King said, “Kline’s pioneering vision for Digital Dailies(R) and our company’s dedication have led the industry’s transition to file-based workflow in the cloud. We thank the Television Academy for recognizing the significant role that Digital Dailies(R) play in the television industry.

Having launched in the era of film, Digital Dailies(R) has bridged the gap to today’s file-based workflows through its advanced metadata processing that enabled a clip-based paradigm.”

The Engineering Emmy(R) marks DAX’s second recognition this year, following the StudioDaily Prime Award at 2013 NAB. TV shows using Digital Dailies(R) and DAX racked up 53 nominations and 9 wins at the 2013 Primetime Emmys(R).

Missouri Valley’s Community Action Agency’s Exceptional Community Innovation Recognized with National Award

Stacy Flowers MARSHALL, Mo., Sept. 10, 2013 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Missouri Valley Community Action Agency is one of four Community Action Agencies (CAAs) working to alleviate poverty in America to receive the 2013 Community Economic Development Entrepreneurship and Innovation Award. The awards, administered by the Community Action Partnership, were presented August 29, 2013 at the organization’s Annual Convention in Chicago.

In order to be selected, the winning projects were evaluated based on its effectiveness in job creation, asset building, and economic impact on low-income communities in three categories: Entrepreneurship, Protege, and Master Innovator. MVCAA’s Missouri Alliance for the Development of Entrepreneurship (MADE) was selected as a winner in the National Entrepreneurship and Innovation category.

Missouri Valley Community Action Agency’s MADE provides support for new and developing businesses. Participants receive mentoring, professional and technical support as they work to actualize their business ideas into sustainable business ventures. To date, MADE has assisted in the development of over 30 businesses that employ 130 people in Missouri.

“In many communities, the Community Action Agencies are THE go-to organization for helping people, creating jobs and improving communities-and this role increases during challenging economic times,” said Pam LaFrenz, Executive Director of MVCAA. “That’s why we created our program, and we’re proud not only that it has been cited as one of the best in the country, but that it’s making a considerable positive impact on our neighbors, both financially and personally.”

The award, created in 2010, honors CAAs for exemplary leadership and innovation in creating change for low-income people and families-specifically in economic development. It is part of the Partnership’s Community Economic Development Exemplary Practice Initiative, funded by the federal Office of Community Services/Administration for Children and Families/U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

“Despite the fact that CAAs are under increased pressure due to budget cuts and growing requests for services, they are still leading the way in terms of novel approaches that are really helping low-income people and communities thrive,” said Stacy Flowers, Director of Community Economic Development at the Community Action Partnership. “The award winners highlight CAAs’ unique ability to spearhead programs that promote economic security and reduce poverty.”

The award ceremony was held on Tuesday, March 19, at the Hilton New Orleans Hotel in New Orleans, La., during ASPA’s Annual Conference.

The ASPA Lifetime Achievement award recognizes one person in the nation who has dedicated their life to public service and gone above and beyond in his or her service to the community.

Audrey was honored for her more than 35 years of work in local and state governments as a professor, budget director, planning commissioner and consultant. Currently, her significant talents are benefiting San Bernardino County and California at large, where she is focusing much of her attention on client and workforce fiscal circumstances.

“This award is truly an honor,” states Mathews. “I am grateful and humbled that I would even be considered in the same category of those who have been recognized for this award before me. I have dedicated my life to helping those in need in the communities where I live, work, and play. I never thought of my life’s dedication to the public service as something remarkable. I’m just doing what I was born to do: mentor and provide a helping hand to those in need of my services.”

With her help, the Workforce Investment Board continues to help numerous local businesses find and train employees by connecting them with local job seekers.

Audrey currently works as an adjunct Professor Emeriti at California State University, San Bernardino, where she has developed diversity management, economic development, and budget and finance curriculum for the Public Administration department and Park University in Kansas City, Missouri.

Audrey is a 2007 National Academy of Public Administration Fellow. She received her Doctor of Public Administration from the University of Southern California and Masters of Public Administration with an emphasis in Organizational Development from California State University, Northridge.

“Her education and experience make her a leader in her field, but what really sets her apart is her heart. The care she has for her community and its citizens shows through the passion and time she puts into all of her work. It is no surprise that she is being honored with this lifetime achievement award,” Sandy Harmsen added.
