Leadership Institute Employee of the Quarter: Lauren Day

Early this year, Lauren Day sought out the responsibility of overseeing LI's role at the Conservative Political Action Conference 2013 -- no small task and one she did not have to assume.

And was CPAC ever a success for the Institute.

The trainings, job fair, and happy hour were all well-attended. The booth was stocked with eye-catching marketing materials and trained staff.

Lauren worked tirelessly to promote LI's events at CPAC, supply training coordinators with needed materials, and -- behind the scenes -- negotiate the very best deals for LI with ACU staff.

Many staff join me in remarking on how well run CPAC was this year.

I suspect all will join me in commending Lauren's enthusiasm and dedication to the Institute. Naming her employee of the quarter today recognizes her work on CPAC, but also the dozens of good projects she has accomplished for LI -- often without credit or praise.

Lauren is an invaluable part of LI's team, and I am pleased to name her employee of the quarter.
