David Treber, Frostburg State University’s Director of Conferences and Events, recently received the 2006 “Outstanding Individual Achievement” Award from the Association of Collegiate Conferences and Events Directors – International (ACCED-I).
The award from ACCED-I, the overseeing body for collegiate conferences programs, cited the culmination of the complete organizational change for FSU’s Conferences and Events program. FSU was once known in the summertime as the home of the Washington Redskins Training Camp, now 7,000 campers stay on campus each summer. Treber has developed a successful branding program of “Cool Summer Nights, Warm Mountain Hospitality,” with anchor summer programs such as Coach Wootten’s Basketball Camp and Maryland Girls State.
Also cited in the nomination was the OCE’s management of recent state youth camp regulation changes, which means that Treber had to take the lead with many camps on compliance. In 2005, officials of the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene called FSU a model for the rest of the state.
In receiving the award, Treber thanked all on campus who make guests feel so welcome.
