McLean, VA — The American Ambulance Association (AAA) is proud to award Jon Howell, Asbel Montes and David Tetrault with the 2016 President’s Award. 

These awards are given by the President to volunteer leaders who have shown commitment to the advancement of the AAA above and beyond the call of duty. This year the three outstanding volunteers represent tireless work on behalf of the AAA.

Jon Howell has served as the chair of the AAA’s nominating committee for 4 years and in that time has worked to grown the involvement of our members to participate in the AAA nominating and election process. Asbel Montes has worked tirelessly as Co-Chair of the Payment Reform Committee, and David Tetrault has served as a Region IV Board or Director as well as an active participant on the Membership and Education Committee. AAA President Hall was quoted as saying, “this award is given by the sole discretion of the President of the AAA and I cannot think of three more deserving individuals than Jon, Asbel and David. No matter what I have asked them to do for the AAA, they have taken on the task with determination, commitment and a level of servant leadership rarely seen anymore.”

It is for their leadership that the AAA is pleased to recognize Jon Howell, Asbel Montes and David Tetrault with the 2016 President’s Award.

This year’s recipients will be presented with their respective President’s Award at the AAA Conference and Tradeshow in Las Vegas, Nevada on November 8, 2016. This event is the premier event for leaders in the ambulance industry, featuring exclusive education, networking, and cutting edge technology.
