NLA Chapter Presidents’ Service Awards
At the NLA’s annual Honors and Awards ceremony, Chapter presidents have the opportunity to present Chapter President’s Service Awards. These awards are presented by each Chapter President to one or two members from their chapter who has provided exceptional service to the chapter over the previous year. At this year’s ceremony at the Scientific Sessions in Orlando, the following NLA members were presented with this special recognition:

In addition to the Chapter President’s Service Award, the NLA President awards one NLA staff member in recognition of their outstanding dedication and service to the NLA. This year’s recipient is Erin Corrales, associate director of development for the NLA. She has been with the NLA working in various capacities for more than eight years. This past year she did a particularly outstanding job as Project Manager for the HIT paper that was recently published in the Journal of Clinical Lipidology. And that was just one of her many, many projects that she coordinates and executes flawlessly on behalf of the NLA.
Congratulations to all of these recipients for their outstanding service to the National Lipid Association.
