Here’s a copy of Chapter President David Dahan, Esq.’s remarks concerning Lynn when presenting her with the award, “Lynn has been in the construction industry for over 35 years. She is the Director of the Community Associations Division and Senior Project Manager for Parallel Architectural Group in NJ where she provides a wide range of services to community associations including design and engineering services, construction documentation and administration, reserves, and transitions.

Lynn was on the committee that helped create the Chapter’s Gold Star program and has been on the Chapter’s Gold Star Committee since its formation in 1999. She served on the CAI Business Council from 2000 – 2006, six years on the chapter board from 2002 – 2006, served on the Foundation for Community Association Research from 2006 – 2013, and was the President of that Foundation in 2013.

She has frequently spoken at chapter programs and has also authored many articles for the chapter magazine. Lynn also is a CAI Reserve Specialist.

She volunteers her time with various charities such as Adopt-A-Family, Making Strides, and Handicap Riding Therapy. And with all that, she still finds time to be a wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother!

I have had the pleasure of working with Lynn. And let me say, you want her on your side as an expert. She is extremely competent, tells it like it is, and an excellent expert in her field. She has been successful in all her professional endeavors!

Congratulations Lynn!”
