Ros Van Hecke
2021 Region 5 Hall of Fame
Ros VanHecke, a member of River Blenders Chorus, has shared her time and talents with Region 5 for several years. She served as the Events Coordinator during the REC pilot and for the Regional Management Team, she also served as the Regional Competition Steering Committee Chair during the REC pilot and is currently holding this position.
She grew the RCSC into the effective team it is, bringing more people into the work and management of the event, designing it as a training/ shadowing opportunity for members interested in becoming involved at the regional level. Ros recruited on site teams for each educational event, encouraging people to be as much or as little involved as possible. Ros knows how to bring out the very best in others. No matter what her interests or jobs might be she jumps in with both feet. She is a team builder and therefore she empowers everyone around her.
Ros has worked tirelessly during the most challenging Covid times. She coordinated the Virtual Convention in 2020 and was right at the helm of the 2021 Virtual Convention. She worked with convention contracts, hotels, vendors, catering services…the list goes on and on, to reach the best results for Region 5. She is knowledgeable, tactful, does not micromanage, but provides support when needed. Ros is so deserving of this award because of her total willingness to step up and do the job at hand.
Thank you, Ros!
