The SNAG Board of Directors has awarded the 2018 Volunteer Recognition Award to Anne Havel.
Anne has served on SNAG’s Board of Directors since 2011. She has been SNAG’s Treasurer during those years. She also currently serves as Treasurer for The Enamelist Society and Pocosin Arts.
Graduating in 1980 from from Baruch College, NYC, Anne earned a BBA in Accounting & BS in Computer Methodology and became a CPA in 1981. For nearly 20 years, Anne applied her accounting skills in the business world. Anne has also been an independent studio artist for 17 years, teaching workshops and exhibiting in juried fine craft shows. Her work has been included in numerous exhibitions, public and private collections, and publications. Her enameling and metalsmithing pursuits explore ideas about current brain-dominating subject matter which frequently includes nuclear power, planet degradation, molecular & cellular structures, mathematical pursuits, and all of their inter-connectedness.
“To give real service you must add something which cannot be bought or measured with money, and that is sincerity and integrity.” — Douglas Adams (1952-2001). Clearly, when he wrote this, Adams must have thought of Anne Havel. I worked with many people over the years, no one is more sincere, thoughtful, and has more integrity than Anne. An exceptional asset on our board, a selfless, loyal friend and ally. I am immensely grateful for Anne’s impeccable service for many years. She’s the “real deal” and worthy of recognition. Thank you, Anne!” –Brigitte Martin, SNAG Past President
Anne was recognized at the Membership Meeting during the SNAG Portland, Oregon conference in May 2018.
