Recognized as Event Professional of the Year by National Association for Catering and Events (NACE) Baltimore is a sales manager from AFR Furniture Rental.
This catering and events industry association chose Jennifer Bafford among three finalists. Judges cited her level of support, leadership, involvement in chapter programs and meetings, and overall commitment to promoting NACE and the Baltimore Chapter.
In 2012, Bafford first sat on a committee as Cocktail Hour Chair of UNCORKED! For 2013, she joined co-chair Jean Wade Mayer on the committee for UNCORKED! Bafford became fundraising chair, honoring her new commitment in the face of challenges.
Preparing for board meetings, gathering all raffle items, selling record-setting amounts of raffle tickets, attending all UNCORKED committee meetings, Bafford did all these things on top of her chair responsibilities as well as her email priorities.
When Bafford became a regional sales and training manager at AFR, she traveled and no longer represented the Baltimore market, but this didn’t change how she strived to contribute to the betterment of the chapter.
