February 2021 5 Star Champion: Ahmad Muhammed and Ahsan Jamil

Each month we feature five winners and connect their stories to the 5 Star principle they best represent. 

Nomination by Craig McMillan: Ahmad Muhammed and Ahsan Jamil worked together to build the relationship with this community. I received the below below email from a happy board member.

Ahmad has been a breath of fresh air for us. He has a laid-back style (he doesn't get flustered easily) but is diligent in his duties. We have a call with Ahmad every Monday and always provides updates and takes notes on new projects and issues. He demonstrates good follow-up on work and keeps us informed of his progress. Ahmad has good communication skills and the staff feel like they are being included in the communication stream now. After each board meeting, Ahmad meets with staff and reviews upcoming projects, decisions made, and what was discussed in the meeting that may have an impact on their work. Other feedback from staff is that he is quick to respond to requests and things are being done in a much timelier manner. Ahmad is very approachable and are happy to work with him.

On the accounting side, Ahsan did a very good job of contacting suppliers to obtain copies of outstanding invoices and process those invoices to bring everything up to date. Invoices are now being processed more expeditiously and we have not had any complaints from suppliers. Our treasurer has expressed that the coding of invoices has improved significantly and that she is feeling much better about the quality of the monthly statements we receive. Several board members praised Ahsan at our last Board meeting. We appreciate Ahsan's efforts in this important area and hope that he can continue assisting us with accounting matters.

Once again, thank you for your time and considerations of our needs and for choosing people to turn things around.
