Both Glassey and Kim expressed their gratitude for the award. “To be recognized with all of these people means a lot to me,” said Glassey. Kim remarked that “the award transcends broker-dealers.”
The Richard Ford Volunteer Service award honors and promotes NTSA members’ volunteer and service work both with NTSA in their tax-exempt retirement industry markets and also with the member’s local governmental and nonprofit communities. It also demonstrates that the excellence and social responsibility NTSA members represent enhance their unique partnerships. The Richard Ford Volunteer Service Award was instituted in honor of Richard Ford, a lifelong volunteer who also served as a dedicated volunteer with the NTSA ever since its establishment, who passed on in March 2019. More information about the Richard Ford Volunteer Service Award is available here.
The Ford Volunteer Service Award was established in 2019, NTSA’s 30th anniversary year, in honor of the unique, lifelong volunteer efforts of Richard H. Ford, a lively and dedicated volunteer with the NTSA dating back to its establishment in 1989, as well extensive service with his local community. To honor his legacy of service, the Ford Volunteer Service Award testifies to the retirement industry, tax-exempt and nonprofit communities – as well as to clients and their interests they support – that the excellence and social responsibility which NTSA members evidence enhances their unique partnerships.
The Award recognizes NTSA members’ works in two key areas, key elements that Richard Ford exemplified in his life:
Volunteerism: Activity with NTSA standing committees and projects, through the NTSA member’s donation of time and talent, beyond the norm and with innovative excellence.
Service: Local and/or national community and/or governmental works, through the NTSA member’s donation of time, talent and/or treasure.
