Nomination letter:

We are writing to nominate for the Bob Ingraham Award, one of AKA’s most familiar faces.
In the earliest years of the Association, things we now take for granted were set down as format, policy, and procedures. Our Nominee served as a Regional Director for what was then Region 4, for four years. They also acted as First Vice President under Red Braswell and then Bevan Brown.
Our nominee assisted in drafting and then revising our Bylaws. They have since served as the AKA’s pro-forma parliamentarian.
As the Association evolved, so did our rules. Our nominee has been appointed the Chair of the Bylaws Committee for over 15 years.
And finally, our nominee has attended Conventions. They have attended each and every of our Convention. Only two people in the history of AKA have accomplished this record.
For his thoughtful, active, and ongoing support of the Association, covering twenty-seven years, and still going strong, we are pleased to nominate Ted Manekin of New York.
