New Brunswick’s Hannah honored with New Professional Award
The University of New Brunswick’s Melissa Hannah received the 2016 NACCU New Professional Award, and was presented the honor by Vince Roos from award sponsor U.S. Bank.
In 2010, when UNB’s Information Technology Services department first took over management of card services at the University of New Brunswick (UNB), IDs were used for meal plans, library services and visual identity. Hannah’s role at that time was to manage and implement all marketing and communication activities to inform and educate the community about new card services soon to be introduced. This also included the development of the UCard logo and current card design and promoting the move of print credits to be paid through the card system.
