Kimberly Bonin, of Bonin Architects & Associates, PLLC, New London, was named the Member of the Year of the Lake Sunapee Region Business Network International Chapter.

The Member of the Year Award recognizes a BNI member for their attitude, attendance, quality of referrals, and contribution to the growth of the chapter. Bonin was presented with the award at the BNI Regional Conference awards dinner in Portsmouth. Almost 200 members were present to honor directors and members from New Hampshire, Maine, and Western Massachusetts at the Regional Conference.

"Kim was selected unanimously by the members for this recognition and we congratulate her on this most deserved honor. By developing meaningful relationships with our local quality business professionals, she has earned the distinction of passing the most referrals which generated much valuable business to chapter members in a stalled economy. These relationships have proven to be a real asset to us all as she has successfully matched the wants and needs of her clients and friends with skilled professional vendors who have excellent reputations in the community,” said Deane Geddes, of Country Houses Real Estate and President of the Lake Sunapee Region BNI Chapter.
