Tyze CEO Vickie Cammack and her husband Al Etmanski will be honoured among the recipients of this year’s BC Community Achievement Awards, established to recognize and celebrate the spirit, imagination, dedication and contribution of British Columbians to their communities.
An independent advisory council selects the recipients of the British Columbia Community Achievement Awards and this year’s council is made up of Mayor Larry Cross of Sidney, Mayor Mary Sjostrom of Quesnel, and past recipients Marlene Grinnell of Langley (2006), Patrick Kelly of Victoria (2009) and Jane Frost of Vancouver (2006).
The award description reads: ”Al Etmanski and Vickie Cammack are visionary social thinkers. In 1989, they co-founded Planned Lifetime Advocacy Network Society (PLAN), a support network that enables BC parents to plan for the future security of their children with disabilities. Adopted across Canada and around the world, PLAN and its related organizations Tyze Personal Network and PLAN Institute for Caring Citizenship have had a monumental impact on the wellbeing of communities everywhere.”
A presentation ceremony will take place at Government House in Victoria on April 25, 2012 where each winner will receive a certificate and a medallion designed by B.C. artist Robert Davidson.
