WASHINGTON – DAV (Disabled American Veterans) has named Ronald Holtberg of Wilmington, N.C., as the Membership Recruiter of the Year, for the third consecutive year.
This honor highlights the efforts of an individual whose work promoting membership among veterans help ensure DAV will remain a strong and effective advocate for injured and ill veterans long into the future.
Holtberg will be presented the Recruiter of the Year award y National Commander Larry Polzin at the organization’s 92nd National Convention at the Hilton Orlando Aug. 10-13.
Holtberg recruited 252 veterans into the Department of North Carolina. In addition to his recognition as a recruiter, Holtberg serves as a Legislative, Membership and service Officer at DAV Chapter 11 in Wilmington.
“Ronald Holtberg has shown such dedication to the long-term success of DAV through his tireless recruiting,” said Polzin. “His efforts today pave the road for DAV’s future and open the door for a new generation of veterans to become involved in service and advocacy work for their brothers and sisters.”
“It is because of efforts like those of Mr. Holtberg that DAV has seen membership remain so strong,” said DAV National Adjutant/CEO Marc Burgess. “This was a very successful year for us as far as membership is concerned. His efforts should serve as an inspiration to others that we always need to be reaching out to veterans and letting them know we are here for them.”
DAV empowers veterans to lead high-quality lives with respect and dignity. It is dedicated to a single purpose; fulfilling our promises to the men and women who served. DAV does this by ensuring that veterans and their families can access the full range of benefits available to them; fighting for the interests of America’s injured heroes on Capitol Hill; and educating the public about the great sacrifices and needs of veterans transitioning back to civilian life. DAV, a non-profit organization with 1.2 million members, was founded in 1920 and chartered by the U.S. Congress in 1932. Learn more at www.dav.org.
