SAN DIEGO — June 19, 2012 – Leading industry veteran, Claudia Wehrman, CMP, DMCP and regional director of sales and marketing for AlliedPRA San Diego was awarded the prestigious Nancy Morrell Swanson Commitment Award by the San Diego chapter of Meeting Professional International (MPI), at the association’s 35th annual awards and installation gala held this month at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel and Marina.

It honors those rare individuals who, by a commitment to visionary hard work and creative insight, have positively influenced chapter success through cumulative and involved volunteer services and continued mentoring. Recipients must have been chapter members for 10 or more years in good standing who have previously or continually served in a leadership capacity, while contributing significantly to the chapter.

“Claudia continually strives to advance the DMC industry through her dedicated work ethic and leadership skills,” shared Denise Dornfeld, senior vice president of AlliedPRA San Diego. “It takes a tremendous amount of commitment to achieve set business goals and to also spend time in a volunteer leadership role. We are pleased her peers within the MPI organization recognize Claudia as one who represents the industry so well and the MPI chapter in a positive and professional manner. This award is well-deserved and we are so proud of Claudia’s accomplishments.”
