Tompkins Cortland Community College's Martha Hubbard with her CEANY award
Tompkins Cortland Community College’s Director of Corporate and Community Partnerships has been recognized on the state level for her years of outstanding service to the College and lifelong learners in the community. Martha Hubbard has been selected as the “Outstanding Experienced Continuing Education Professional” by the Continuing Education Association of New York (CEANY). She was presented with the award at the annual conference in Saratoga earlier this month.
The award is designed to honor leaders who strive toward the highest levels of personal and professional accomplishment and who excel in continuing education. Hubbard certainly qualifies, with nearly 20 years of experience in the field at Tompkins Cortland Community College. She oversees Biz, which supports local organizations and businesses through professional development workshops and customized training, reaching more than 3,500 people each year. She also is the primary link between the College and local employers, serving as the College’s point person for START-UP NY and REV Ithaca Startup Works.
“CEANY has meant so much to me over my career. Members from both SUNY and CUNY two and four-year campuses have always generously shared ideas, approaches, and contacts for providing quality continuing education programming,” said Hubbard. “I was honored to be given this award from my colleagues from across the state.”
Hubbard has been on the CEANY executive board for more than ten years, including two years as vice present and a year as president. Statewide, CEANY includes more than 500 members representing all public higher education across the state, including both SUNY and CUNY two and four-year institutions.
