Candice Muldrow, MultiView’s senior manager of partnerships and current DFWAE board member, presented the award. “It was an absolute honor to present this award. Mark has been a long-time champion for the association community and it was a thrill to recognize his achievements and contributions on such a fitting occasion, Association Day,” said Muldrow.
