Citation: During the 18 months in which Daniel Reich served as president of the chapter, he was instrumental in organizing six events, the largest of which had approximately 100 attendees. His enthusiasm helped to attract members, including those willing to act as future board members, maintaining the momentum of the new chapter. After stepping down from his role as president in 2015, Reich has still participated in chapter activities and organization in his role as past president.

In the past two years, Reich has taken many actions for which we believe he deserves the “moving spirit” award: He has led the revival of the Southeast Michigan Chapter, he has put in great effort to organize a series of successful events, and he has supported the new chapter officers, helping to ensure success of the chapter in years to come.
