Michael was recognised as continually going over and above to serve SITE, being an exemplary chapter leader and member. His dedication and accomplishments in 2020 include chairing the committee that organised the Chapter Excellence Awards, leading a team of former chapter leaders to review/revise criteria for the Chapter Excellence Awards. He also created a webinar “SITE Ireland: CITP Certification - Your Questions Answered Section,” which helped demonstrate how to apply to sit for the CITP exam and provided overall tips. He offered this to all chapters, to rave reviews. Michael was also the catalyst behind the SITE Ireland sponsorship agreement with Tourism Northern Ireland, supporting 15 new CIS certifications.
