MAMARONECK, N.Y. -- The Business Council of Westchester recently held their Holiday Bash at the Westchester Marriott in Tarrytown and honored Jennifer Flowers, president of Mamaroneck-based Accreditation Guru, with the 2015 Ambassador of the Year Award.
Flowers has been a member of the BCW since 2011 and became an ambassador two years ago. In that time, she’s mentored over 25 new members and has worked to connect businesses from different areas of work to the BCW.
The ambassador program, led by Senior Vice President of PCSB Bank, Michael Schirillo, is made up of BCW volunteers who mentor new members through their first year of membership. Their goal is to guide these members to attend events and make good use of their investment in the BCW to achieve their own business goals.
”The BCW continues to grow and support our membership through the support and efforts of Jennifer Flowers and The Ambassador Team," said Sara James, Vice President of Membership and Programs. In more than 17 years of accreditation experience Flowers has served as Director of Volunteer Services and Accreditation Commission at the Council on Accreditation (COA) and held key management roles in both for-profit and nonprofit organizations in the education, health care, religious and social service sectors.
In 2009, she founded Accreditation Guru Inc., and since then has led client organizations through the accreditation and re-accreditation process, as well as offered expertise in many other areas of the business. She leads customized training workshops, holds an MBA in International Management, and is certified in Nonprofit Board Education.
“Since joining the Business Council of Westchester, I’ve found the association to be very informative and useful as a business owner, as well as being an excellent networking vehicle. When the opportunity arose to volunteer as an Ambassador, I was more than happy to accept,” said Jennifer Flowers. “I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my role as an Ambassador. I’m able to meet and assist new members in learning about all the Business Council has to offer and get the most out of their membership.”
