Rader named Volunteer of the Year
Congratulations to Kate Rader, Manager, Recruitment Coordination Services, UT Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, TX, who received the Volunteer of the Year Award at the 2013 ASPR Annual Business Meeting!
The purpose of the Volunteer of the Year Award is to recognize and honor an ASPR member for significant contributions made as a volunteer over the past year. Rader has made significant contributions to ASPR over the past many years and is both a role model and an inspiration for others.
Rader has been extremely involved with the development of the Onboarding and Retention Chapter (OAR) over the last 12 months and is the current president of OAR. She has also been an active member of the Academic In-House Recruiters Chapter (AIR) as well heading up AIR’s Membership Committee. Rader has also been an active member on the ASPR Membership Committee and is currently co-chair of the ASPR Chapter & Regional Relations Committee.
Donna Ecclestone, FASPR, current AIR President and ASPR Secretary, is thrilled that Rader is this year’s award recipient, “Kate has contributed so much to the special interest chapters of AIR and OAR, serving in leadership roles in both organizations from their development. She’s a pleasure to work with because she is personable and positive. She will ‘dive in’ when needed and when she is leading a team, she continuously provides support and encouragement to her team members to reach their goals.” Christopher Kashnig, co-chair of the Chapter and Regional Relations Committee with Rader, echoed this praise, “Kate gave her heart and soul to ASPR chapter development this past year. She served as President of the Onboarding and Retention (OAR) Chapter, was active in the Academic In-House Recruiters (AIR) Chapter, and also agreed to be co-chair of the Chapter and Regional Relations Committee with me. Kate brings an enthusiasm to ASPR that is infectious to other recruiters. I can’t think of anyone who deserves the ASPR Volunteer of the Year Award more than Kate.”
As a result of her dedication and hard work, Rader has made significant contributions to ASPR that have positively impacted all members. Follow in her footsteps and volunteer today!
