ABC VIRGINIA CHAPTER 2021 MEMBER OF THE YEAR 

Associated Builders & Contractors – Virginia (ABC-VA) is thrilled to present the 2021 Member of the Year Award to Crystal Gloeckner of Comfort Systems of Virginia, Inc!

This honor is bestowed upon a member each year who shows commitment not only to ABC-VA, but to the industry collectively, throughout their career.

On February 11th, 2022, ABC-VA Vice President, Robert Camlin, and Member Services & Education Director, Jamie Carrow, surprised Crystal with the 2021 Member of the Year Award, surrounded by many of her co-workers, peers and fellow ABC-VA members.

With her 20-plus years of mechanical construction and service industry experience, not only is Crystal highly active in all company-related functions, but also various ABC-VA trainings, events and committees. Her involvement with our association is extensive:

• 2017 ABC-VA Excellence in Construction – Project Administrator of the Year Award
• Past-Chair of the Management Education Committee and current Vice Chair
• Vice Chair of the Leadership Committee
• Serves on the Inclusion, Diversity & Equity (IDE) Committee
• Provides innovative ideas to various other committees, such as Networking & Involvement and Young Professionals

• Introduces new trainings and secures management education offerings for Hampton Roads, as well as statewide
• Sets attendance goals for events and does whatever possible to achieve it
• Created “Meet the Committees” events

Crystal is the definition of a team player: someone who actively contributes to their group to complete tasks, meet goals or manage projects; consistently shows up to help while motivating those around her to be a hard worker; an incredibly organized individual; and has created a space where others want to belong. Her enthusiasm for the construction industry is infectious, and she paves her legacy by influencing the individuals she works alongside. 

ABC-VA would like to thank Crystal for her continued dedication to ABC and our industry. Her contributions have a significant impact on our industry, and her accomplishments do not go unnoticed.
