Jennifer McDonald Presented with the NACCU 2021 New Professional Award

Phoenix, AZ – May 7, 2021 – NACCU is proud to honor Jennifer McDonald from Georgian College as the recipient of the NACCU 2021 New Professional Award, sponsored by Transact. Rachael Sepcic, Vice President Global Sales at Transact, presented the award during the virtual NACCU 2021 Awards Ceremony event on April 20, 2021.

The NACCU New Professional Award recognizes an individual with five or fewer years in the campus identification and transaction system profession who has made significant contributions to their institution, the industry and to the association during their relatively short time in their position.

Jennifer McDonald has been described as eager to learn and collaborate with others. She joined her card office in 2018 and has already made not only significant contributions to her institution’s campus card program and helped improved their services, but also to the NACCU community. She currently serves on the Professional Development Committee and volunteered as a mentor this year. She is active on the listserv and has shared her knowledge and expertise on multiple topics as well as sharing items to the NACCU vault for others to see. She continues to grow her knowledge by attending professional development courses and was a presenter at this year’s conference. In the words of one of her references, she is “an admirable example of what we need from our new professionals to keep our industry growing and advancing.”

“I was touched and pleasantly surprised to find out that my colleagues had taken time out of their busy schedules to nominate me for this award,” said Jennifer. “When I joined the card industry a few short years ago, I very quickly realized what a valuable asset being a member of the NACCU community is. I was eager to give back to a group that had given me so much support and camaraderie. Thank you so much for this honor. It really means a lot to me to be recognized by such an incredible group of people.”

NACCU and award sponsor Transact congratulate Jennifer McDonald as the recipient of the NACCU 2021 New Professional Award.
