Chamber Announces Finalists for Admin Cup

Posted on April 15, 2014

Three finalists have been selected for the Administrative Professional of the Year Award, which will be presented by the El Dorado Chamber of Commerce at the upcoming Administrative Professionals Appreciation Luncheon on April 23 at the El Dorado Conference Center. The three finalists are: Shelli Bounds with DaVita South Arkansas Dialysis; Allison Lusby with Systems Contracting; and Carolyn Waller with the City of El Dorado.  

"We received more nominations than we expected, which is a great problem to have,? said Kay Smith, the Chamber?s director of Member Services. "A committee consisting solely of our colleagues from outside Union County reviewed all nominations and narrowed down the nominees to these three outstanding finalists. The goals of this award are to recognize and honor an outstanding Union County administrative professional and to pass the Admin Cup on to the next winner.?  

Individuals were nominated by their colleagues for their outstanding service, superior performance, exceptional efficiency, integrity and dedication to their company and to fellow employees. To qualify, an administrative professional had to be in his or her position for at least one year. Criteria included showing concern for and helpfulness to others; having pride in his/her job; consistently exhibiting excellent job performance; performing actions above and beyond the call of duty; having a cooperative attitude; and displaying company involvement.  

The winner will receive the Admin Cup, a traveling cup that will remain in the possession of the winner for one year. The winner will also receive a gift and a $100 gift certificate. The remaining finalists will each receive a commemorative award and $50 gift certificate.  

The cost to attend the luncheon is $17.50 per person. Reservations are required by Monday, April 21, and can be made by contacting the Chamber at (870) 863-6113 or Companies may reserve tables for $180. Each administrative professional who attends the luncheon will receive a gift and will be eligible for door prizes and the grand prizes. The luncheon runs from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.  

The luncheon is sponsored by El Dorado Chemical Company and supported by El Dorado Printing, South Arkansas Arts Center and Young's Funeral Directors of Distinction.   For more information on the Chamber, call (870) 863-6113 or visit
