Each year, the AMA Iowa Board of Directors nominates fantastic volunteers from the past year for the honor of Volunteer of the Year. This year, we are pleased to announce Kait Miller as the winner of this award.
Kait is a Marketing Strategist at Sammons Retirement Solutions in West Des Moines and served as the Communications Lead for the 2019 NOVA Awards. Her experience with copywriting, project management, development and execution of marketing plans, corporate communications and social media was a huge asset to the committee and helped us attain record attendance at the event.
As one of the largest events of the year, the NOVA Awards require a considerable communication effort. From calls for entries, finalist announcements, and People’s Choice Award voting online, to deadline reminders, registration invitations, and winner announcements, Kait organized and managed the content calendar and executed everything in a timely and organized manner. This included emails, social media posts, and press releases that she coordinated through our board members and PR sponsor, Hanser and Associates. In addition to her communications duties, Kait regularly attended committee meetings, where she actively provided ideas for the event and always offered a helping hand to her fellow committee members.
“This is a huge amount of work, and something Kait enthusiastically took on and completed without hesitation,” said Christy Gooding, AMA Iowa Immediate Past President and NOVA Awards Co-Chair. “We couldn’t have done it all without her.”
Kait was recognized at the luncheon on June 5 and was presented with the Volunteer of the Year Award. A big thanks to Kait for all the work she put in this year!
