[April 29, 2011]  At the 2011 Office Professionals Luncheon at the American Legion on Thursday, the Lincoln/Logan County Chamber of Commerce celebrated office professionals in the community. This year's event was sold out, with 200 individuals coming together to celebrate excellence in the workplace.

The event was a great midafternoon break with a catered luncheon by Pat and Roger Bay of Lincoln Land Catering and a presentation of the "Slightly Off Success Principles" of professional speaker Deb DiSandro. Deb shared with the audience and demonstrated how letting go of the "super syndrome" and embracing a more fun and realistic approach to everyday challenges results in greater productivity, creativity and confidence.

The chamber thanks the State Bank of Lincoln, Deron Powell State Farm and Graue Inc. for their generous speaker sponsorship.

At the luncheon, the Office Professional of the Year nominees were recognized and the 2011 winner was announced: Virginia Ann Davis of Eaton, who recently celebrated 32 years with the company.

The other nominees were Marilyn Armbrust, retired from Regions; Pam Baker of Ag-Land FS; Vicky Bell of Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital; Joann Coers of the Odd Fellows Grand Lodge; Krystal Diebert of Christian Homes; Sharon Sheehan-Fak from the office of Dr. James Wilmert; Jenni Humphres of Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital; Bunny Laymon of Lincoln Chrysler Dodge Jeep; and Fran Petersen of Stuart Solutions.

The 2011 award was made possible due to the generous sponsorship by Eaton Corp. This award is given to an individual who does outstanding work, is dedicated to his or her job, gives 110 percent, and is always going that extra mile.

The Office Professionals Luncheon is an important part of the chamber's vision to be an advocate for business by providing leadership, programs and services that create, protect and enhance the business environment for the benefit of chamber members and Lincoln and Logan County.
