Nicholas McLean named 2021 Chamber Volunteer of the Year
Nicholas McLean is no stranger to serving others and contributing his time and talent to worthy causes. He served in the United States Army for over three years including a combat tour in Afghanistan. He has spent the last 10 years serving in various roles in the Cayman Islands Public Service as a Systems Administrator and Support Project Manager. He currently is the Assistant ICT Manager, where he aids in overseeing a team of 14 staff, managing, and supporting the ICT needs of all Public Schools across Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman.
McLean is a graduate of the Chamber’s 2017 Leadership Cayman class. He enjoyed his experience so much that he volunteered to assist as a class mentor and on the Planning Committee. In 2021, he took on the responsibility of class chair and guided the programme through the many challenges resulting from pandemic
‘’There is a saying that goes ‘Volunteers are not paid, not because they are worthless, but because they are priceless.’ Today I would like to recognise one of these priceless individuals, Nicholas McLean,’’ said Chamber President Mike Gibbs at the AGM last week as he presented him with the distinguished Chamber Volunteer of the Year award for 2021.
‘’The Chamber, like many other not-for-profit organisations in our community, depends on volunteers to complete much of its work. Our volunteers serve in various capacities, serving in leadership roles, chairing committees and task forces, representing the Chamber on public and private sector bodies, and assisting with events and programmes. If we were to calculate the number of hours that our volunteers contribute to our work, it would be in the thousands,’’ Gibbs said.
Congratulations to Nicholas McLean for this outstanding recognition.
