ASAE will present its annual Sentinel Award to two members of Congress, but this year one of them is a former ASAE member.
The two honorees are Reps. Pat Tiberi, R-Ohio (left), and Mark Pocan, D-Wisc. The association is honoring Tiberi for supporting associations in comprehensive tax reform, and Pocan for defending government employees' attendance at association meetings.
Pocan worked for the Wisconsin Realtors from about 1986 to 1988. He was an ASAE member in 1987, according to the association. He started serving in Congress last year. Tiberi is chairman of the Ways and Means Subcommittee on Select Revenue Measures, which covers taxes.
The awards will be presented at a reception during ASAE’s annual Legislative Fly In, March 25-26 at the Hyatt Regency in Washington. Details and to register, go to www.thepowerofa.org/hillvisit.
