2024 Tamarack Award: Alexandra Peace

The Indexing Society of Canada / Société canadienne d’indexation (ISC/SCI) is pleased to announce the 2024 recipient of the Tamarack Award. Alexandra Peace (Canning, Nova Scotia) is being recognized for her contribution and commitment to the society.

Alexandra was chosen for her unflagging enthusiasm, endless willingness to help out, unwavering cheerfulness, and ability to see the promise in the rawest of volunteers.

Alexandra’s colleagues had the following to say about her:

  • “The scope of work that the effervescent Alex undertook during her presidency was staggering: she was dogged in her determination to document the roles and how-to handbooks for all the executive positions and the procedures to transition from one executive to another, enabling seamless transitions after elections. It was a passion project and transformation for the society.”
  • “Alex’s deep commitment to community engagement shines through everything she does. I’m guessing it is this that is at the base of her exuberance.”
  • “She is not just a ball of energy, but a ball of light. Always happy to answer a question or give a bit of feedback or helpful advice, even when she’s halfway across the world.”

“We are thrilled to present this award to Alexandra, and we are honoured to have her as a member of our society,” said Jolanta Komornicka and Maggie Billard, Co-Presidents. “Thank you, Alex, for all you have given to the society and its membership.” The Tamarack Award was instituted to recognize members who go “above and beyond the call of duty” in their volunteer work for the Society.
