COLUMBIA, S.C., June 11, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The South Carolina Society of Association Executives (SCSAE) has recognized Leslie Hope as the 2013 SCSAE Executive of the Year. As the Director of SC Government Relations and Divisions for Carolinas AGC (CAGC), Leslie is a former SCSAE chair.



Upon receipt of this honor, the South Carolina Legislature bestowed further accolades upon Leslie by issuing H.4252, a resolution that in part reads: "Whereas, she has provided legislative leadership to the membership of Carolinas AGC and to the construction industry… Whereas, with the highest standards of work ethic, care, and concern for the membership and co-workers of Carolinas AGC, Leslie Hope has served as a dedicated and outstanding professional deserving of this recognition."

CAGC member Paul Mashburn, Mashburn Construction Company, agrees with SCSAE's choice: "To be recognized as the SCSAE Executive of the Year speaks volumes to Leslie's dedication, tenacity, character and work ethic. This award also brings recognition and credibility to Carolinas AGC. It is not hard to tell that Leslie loves her job and the people she works with every day, and that her heart is in it!"

Cynthia Mills, Carolinas AGC President & CEO shared, "It was a privilege to write a letter of recommendation to support Leslie Hope's nomination for SCSAE's Association Executive of the Year. I have worked with Leslie during a turbulent time for our industry, and she has certainly stepped into the new day and demonstrated leadership in our Association. The members respond to Leslie's efforts with tremendous support quite simply because of the outcomes she delivers legislatively, the coalitions she builds, the education she provides enabling them to communicate effectively with their legislators, and her willingness to listen. We are so proud of Leslie and so fortunate to have her on our CAGC staff team." 

Congratulations Leslie from your Carolinas AGC family!
