The DBSA national organization has awarded DBSA New Jersey their State Organization Chapter Service Award for 2012. The award will be presented on June 14, 2013 during the Chapter Leadership Forum at the DBSA national conference in Miami, FL. DBSA’s announcement of the award cites our organization’s service to our chapters by providing facilitator training, our annual conference, and as a resource for starting new chapters and assisting existing chapters with their needs.
In addition Carolyn Burke of DBSA Burlington County Inspirations received an Outstanding Leadership Award for 2012 to be presented on the same day. True to her chapter’s name, Carolyn is cited for her inspirational leadership in building her chapter and leading her members toward recovery.
This is the second Service Award given to DBSA New Jersey as our organization was previously recognized for our service during 2010. With DBSA Succasunna and DBSA Princeton also winning awards for service during 2009, this adds up to five Service Awards for New Jersey chapters over the last four years.
