Margaret was chosen for her time as president and past president on the executive committee, and for additional time and service spent on many various committees. Margaret’s colleagues had the following to say about her:

She’s calm, thoughtful, and very fair when the time comes to make a decision. Her leadership was always kind-hearted, to the benefit to the executive as well as the full ISC/SCI membership.

Margaret is many things—smart, thorough, thoughtful and courageous; she is an independent thinker. 

Margaret’s diligence and thoroughness are assets to our meetings as she pushes us to ensure that we’re being clear, precise, and productive on whatever issues we deal with.

“I am thrilled to present this award to Margaret, and we are honoured to have her as a member of our society,” said Alexandra Peace, President.

The Tamarack Award was instituted to recognize members who go “above and beyond the call of duty” in their volunteer work for the Society.
