Re: Kristin Bennett
To Whom It May Concern:
It is my pleasure to write of Ms. Kristin Bennett and her many accomplishments over the past eight years at the Blow-in-Blanket Contractors Association (BIBCA). Kristin served as Executive Director for the seven years I served on the board, and she was of tremendous assistance to me during my term as BIBCA president.
Among her many contributions to the organization, Kristin improved the website and made it universally user-friendly; increased membership by 25%, and was instrumental in unifying five different, major corporate groups within the organization, making for an effective and cohesive board of directors.
Kristin has the professional and personal qualities that would make her an asset in any business environment. She possesses extraordinary attention to detail; is a creative problem-solver; has natural leadership skills; and is an excellent public speaker. Most importantly, she has a warm and friendly personality that makes her a pleasure to work with.
I would recommend Kristin to any organization seeking a creative and results-oriented individual with excellent people skills. I am certain she will find success wherever she goes and wish her the very best in all her future endeavors.

RE: Kristin Bennett
To Whom It May Concern:
This is a letter of reference for Kristin Bennett, the President of YES, LLC and Execuive Director for the Blow In Blanket Contractors Association (BIBCA). I have worked with Kristin for the past 6 years, and have always found her performance to be above and beyond.
Kristin Bennett began working for BIBCA in 2002. She was initially hired as an assistant to the then Executive Director Steve Malon. In a very brief time Kristin’s performance exceeded our expectations, and she was given the Executive Directors position.
Kristin not only maintains everything associated with our members in the US and Canada, she is also in charge of organizing and running our annual trade show, maintenance of our databases and web site, coordination of regular board conference calls and face-to-face meetings, and all budget, accounting, and graphics work. She has been instrumental in setting up committees so that when the board meets they are able to move through business quickly and not get bogged down in meaningless details.
I sat on the BIBCA Board of Directors from 1997-2006, serving as President in 2000 & 2004. Kristin’s addition to the Group in 2002 made serving much easier and enjoyable. For anyone looking for the services of an Executive Director, membership management, Event coordination, or any other association business, I would highly recommend Kristin Bennett.
