Chamber President Patricia Kotze (L) and VP. Member Services, Jennifer Bevington present the Volunteer of the Year Award to Ross Gile, DigiCal.

Ross Gile, owner of DigiCal, is awarded the 2019
Volunteer of the Year Award

When an individual acts as a volunteer and contributes their time and resources in support of the Chamber, the efforts that they put forth deserve our heartiest congratulations and recognition. The importance of our volunteers cannot be overstated, it is for this reason that the Volunteer of the Year Award was created to recognize outstanding volunteers whose unselfish and dedicated service has made a significant difference in our Chamber.

Ross Gile is a fine example of an outstanding volunteer. In 2018, Sharon Wu, 2018-2019 President of the SFS Chamber recognized Ross for his significant contributions to the Chamber by presenting him with the President’s Award. Mr. Gile earned this award by using his unique knowledge of Chambers of Commerce and Technology, to create and implement a new website for the SFS Chamber. He worked with chamber staff to develop the Chamber Scoop video series and the Membership Spotlight video series. In addition, Ross was an Ambassador and the Business Expo Chairperson.

Fast forward to 2019 - Ross has since created and donated the SFS Chamber mobile app. An incredibly handy tool for members of our business community. He also created and donated a website dedicated to the Business Expo. And in April, he presented the chamber with a drone video of the 2019 Golf Classic. Ross is still an Ambassador, and has again agreed to serve as the Business Expo Chairperson. It is not hard to understand why the Santa Fe Springs Chamber is so proud to present Ross Gile, owner of DigiCal, the 2019 Volunteer of the Year Award.
