Awards, so sour, so great. The notion of it. He maintains just enough of a staff to keep the MAA office running smoothly. He's a great mentor to those around him. He cares about the community and keeps his eyes on the bigger picture. He makes MAA look easy, when in reality it's far from. Congratulations.

Howie, I don't consider this a demotion, rather it's a promotion to something lesser...wait, this isn't a demotion rec? Oh...well...this is awkward.
Or is it?! Because if there's one thing I know it's that Howie does enough yelling, analysis, review, and administration to earn award after award. And he damn well deserves it. Don't let him convince you otherwise, because he will certainly try.
Now, of course, I'm not a man on the inside that sees everything Howie deals with day in and day out. However, I know the impact he has on the membership and I can just hop over to the Events page to see what all is travelling through his wheelhouse. What I do see, day to day, is the level of engagement he has with the DB. The sheer will he presents against any and all challengers. That, of course, includes the yelling. So much yelling. The problem is, he's not usually wrong and you can't even use that against him!
I would certainly like to.
Many of the current membership would be hard pressed to know of a time where Howie wasn't the man with the approval stamps. There's a reason for that. Take this and accept it in the spirit it is given, Howie. Back to the Bear Cave with you.
