Gordon Chelune
Lifetime Achievement Award Recipient – For Service
INS 47th Annual Meeting
New York City, New York, USA – February 20-23, 2019

When you talk with him he is fully present, focused, and engaged despite the swirl of issues he manages as Executive Director. He is a master of organizational detail, which makes for some of the longest emails any of us have ever seen! As a result, though, he leaves a legacy of clearer and more transparent society procedures, which will be the critical foundation for the society’s future growth. Gordon has always taken pride in representing INS in a positive way.
