“Julie’s commitment, focus and enthusiasm have helped MORPAC to have a banner year,” said MORPAC Chairman Kurt Pfotenhauer.  “Her prodigious ability to fundraise and recruit members has been one of the main reasons we have had such great success.”

The award is named in honor of two of the most distinguished professionals in MORPAC’s history: Ernest P. Schumacher, founder and first Chairman of MORPAC and Mark P. Bolduc, whose exemplary service as MORPAC Director helped the PAC to become the political force it is today.

Ms. Piepho’s ability to help develop and reach MORPAC’s fundraising goals, as well as encourage other MBA members to engage and contribute, have strengthened the industry’s profile among Washington, DC thought leaders.
