The Distinguished Service Award is the ultimate recognition for the ongoing, dedicated service of a very special REALTOR®. They are individuals who have held membership in the board for 15 years or more, and are recognized as a local leader whose performance of service and involvement on the Board, the local real estate industry, and civic organizations is extraordinary. Only two members in our history have received this award, Debbie Dwyer and (I) Nancy Kalodner, and we are pleased to welcome the third recipient. The Distinguished Service recipient is respected by those in the industry and community and are a source of knowledge and experience to business colleagues and within the community. That definition embodies the respect held for Patrice Melluzzo.
Patrice (Pat) has been actively involved in all facets of the board’s volunteer service for more than 27 years during their membership. She has not only served on almost all of the Board’s committees at one time, but has chaired most of them over the years. She served with distinction when chairing the Professional Standards and Grievance Committees for many years, as well as chairing the Personnel Committee, Nominating Committees, and south council leadership. Pat has served the association at the highest levels, including service on the State Board of Directors, on the MLS Board of Directors and as our President. Not to mention a pretty successful bartender at the famous Battle of the Bartenders events for our Community Service Committee. We are so proud to present the Distinguished Service Award to Patrice Pat Melluzzo. Congratulations!
