New York's top governmental office has taken notice of the Niagara University student chapter of the Club Managers Association of America, which has been named the best in the nation for six years running.
In a letter dated June 1, New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo congratulated chapter adviser Dr. William D. Frye and his students on their achievement.
"Your chapter's history of dedicated service and professionalism makes this award richly-deserved and continues to distinguish you as an invaluable asset to the field of education," the governor wrote. "I applaud your dedication and the positive impact you continue to have on the professional club management community locally and beyond."
Niagara's CMAA chapter was selected ahead of 58 others during the 88th World Conference on Club Management, held March 9 in San Antonio. The recognition indicates Niagara University has maintained the most outstanding student chapter in the U.S. for the time period of May 2008 through December 2014.
Students who join Niagara's CMAA student chapter are required to complete a rigorous schedule of educational and networking events and to work at a club each summer between academic semesters.
