Congratulations to all the winners and finalists.
I am very proud and honored to receive the award. Due to medical reasons, I was unable to attend Affiliate Summit, but want to express my appreciation to Shawn Collins and Missy Ward, founders of Affiliate Summit, and everyone involved in the decision. I also want to thank everyone who supported NY Affiliates over the past nine months. There are far too many to thank without sounding like a speech at the Oscar Awards but a special thank you to Kevin Webster my partner and friend in unraveling the mystery; the amazing people who gathered in Albany to find a solution; Haiko De Poel Jr for providing friendship, a forum and was a meeting sponsor; and the other two major sponsors of our Albany meeting – Brian Littleton of ShareASale and Andy Rodriguez of Andy Rodriguez Consulting Inc. There are dozens of other supporters – merchants, networks and affiliates – a big thank you to all.
And thank you always to my children, who always sense when mom needs a hug; they are my hope and inspiration.
