Margaret McNally-Bradshaw '11, who graduated with a B.S. in Business, Management and Economics and is currently pursuing her MBA in Management at SUNY Empire State College, was last month unanimously re-elected to the American Motorcyclist Association board and is the only female on the 12-person board. She now serves as chair.

"I'm honored that my fellow AMA board members have chosen me as chair and I'm humbled by the historical significance of a woman taking this office," McNally said. "At the end of the day, however, the important thing is not the gender of the board's chair, rather it is the united commitment by the board and the AMA staff to carry out our mission to better protect and promote motorcycling. Doing so enables us to nimbly and ably meet the needs of our existing and future members."

In addition, the Albany resident received the 2015 Outstanding IT Service and Support Award for her work with the State Central Registry (aka Child Abuse Hotline), which, she reported, "required countless hours every night and weekends of monitoring, tracing and correcting issues to ensure highly stable functionality." She was formally recognized for her work at the Best of New York Awards Ceremony at the New York Digital Government Summit in September 2015.
