Automobile Journalists Association of Canada

During my tenure as president, Ms. Marsh:

Handled the organization of our executive meetings. This involved but was not limited to making sure everyone would attend, booking air travel when necessary, hotel and meeting rooms, meals, transportation to and from the meeting and so on. In addition her daily duties of looking after the needs 150 journalists in English and French were handled as quickly as possible.

Ms. Marsh oversaw the needs of our Canadian Car of the Year and Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year event which required co-ordinating the coming and goings of up to 150 journalists, between 17 to 20 car companies and up to 300 vehicles at one location as well as hotel rooms meals and meetings for the above group. In addition, Ms. Marsh had to solve any and all problems that occurred in a timely manner (usually within the hour).

AJAC decided to add two events and put the organization directly in Ms. Marsh’s hands. The Canadian Green Car of the Year and Eco Run required the same level of attention to detail that The Car of the Year event does. In fact Ms. Marsh oversaw the logistics for AJAC to ensure that our awards were presented at the Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver Auto Shows.

It was a real pleasure to work with someone who could be trusted to do a job even if something had to be done that wasn’t in the job description. It was my great pleasure to work with a detail oriented problem solver like Allie V. Marsh. I have absolutely no problem or reservation about recommending her for any task she chooses to undertake.

Charles Renny, President (ending 2016)
