NACCU New Professional Award
Martha Perrotin, Colorado State University
Martha Perrotin received the 2017 NACCU New Professional Award. The award was presented by Pam Hoover, the NACCU New Professional Award Sub-Committee Chair.
The New Professional Award recognizes an individual who has made a significant contribution to their institution, the industry and to the Association within a relatively short amount of time. Martha Perrotin, the Assistant Director of Colorado State University’s Ram Card Office, exemplifies these qualities.
Since joining the Ram Card Office, Perrotin has led the design and implementation of SharePoint tools, devised to improve the data management of the front office transaction activity and ID production for efficient inventory and tracking. She also led the creation and implementation of a vending work order SharePoint tool that manages and tracks work orders and communicates them to the respective vendors.
Also at Colorado State, Perrotin created, in collaboration with Technology Services, processes to analyze and monitor dormant declining balance accounts to prevent and identify anomalies. She also developed and facilitated a student internship program to introduce student athletes and high school students to the card office and provide real world professional experiences.
In addition to her dedication to Colorado State, Perrotin has also attended numerous conferences, participating as a presenter, committee member, New Professional Institute and moderator.
