"The 2014 honorees exemplify how leadership, business acumen and adherence to strong governance practices can make a positive difference in the boardroom and for the organizations those boards represent."
Under Ms. Salka's leadership, AMN has created an extensive footprint in corporate citizenship and is proud to partner with a variety of non-profit organizations that contribute to the overall quality of health and quality of life on the regional, national and global level.
