“Lucille Friedland….is one of those rare people who, when given a task, adopts the idea quickly and runs with it. Lucille is able to grasp concepts quickly, and implement them with little to no supervision…. Lucille served two terms as co-director of [our chapter’s]…. Independents’ Roundtable, and did an excellent job. Lucille performed a number of tasks successfully — recruiting speakers, publicizing meetings, writing articles for the newsletter, hosting meetings, measuring results, creating and implementing an operations manual…. All on time and on budget.”

“Lucille Friedland….organize[d] and promote[d] NAWBO-NNM’s donated use of a hot air Balloon Fiesta hospitality tent. Lucille had about seven (7) days to create an event where our members could showcase their businesses at the International Balloon Fiesta…. in Albuquerque, New Mexico. My experience of Lucille is that Lucille is organized, develops useful systems, thoughtful, unassuming, interested in discovering problems and solving them. Productive and competent, Lucille resolves problems and gets the job done right.”

“Since year 2000, Lucille Friedland has been a top notch judge for the former Dalton Pen Awards, an international communications competition. Lucille deserves an award for Lucille’s contributions! In Lucille’s first year of judging, Lucille designed a standardized scoring system…. still in use years later by the judging panel. Lucille took extra effort in writing evaluations of each entry, and Lucille’s analysis was extremely thorough, insightful and sincere. These are the same qualities that I see in Lucille as a person, and in all of Lucille’s work products.”
