Kelley Laird recently received the five-year ABWA service award from Gloria Garrett, president of the Sanibel Captiva Charter Chapter of the American Business Women’s Association.

“ABWA is a pivotal element in career management,” she said. “When I made the move from hospitality to mortgage loan origination, ABWA was there with networking, professional development opportunities and, most importantly, support and encouragement from women I respect.”

Laird is a past president and a current member of the executive board.

“Kelley is the consummate professional and critical to our leadership team,” Garrett said. “She has a firm grasp on chapter history and obligations to the national organization, but when new ideas are needed, she always takes leadership. As Innovation Committee chair, she launched our popular Connections After Hours events, promoting sociable networking and meeting new people.”
