Maureen Cox presents Blanca Gonzalez-Parker with the NYS Zero Lift Task Force's 2018 Advocacy Award.  Blanca is a Program Associate for NYS & CSEA Partnership for Education and Training.  Blanca is a member of conference planning committee of the Zero Lift Task Force and has served as a liaison between the conference committee and the Governor’s Office of Employee Relations.  She helps  pave the way for conference attendance for New York State PEF and CSEA members. This has enabled information to flow that allows the paperwork necessary for conference attendance to be developed and completed timely and getting funds available. Blanca is a nurse by training and brings that insight to the planning process as a voice for the daily struggles faced.  She has made herself available to assist the  conference for any duty needed. Blanca is a shining example of the soft persistent voice that advocates for what is needed.
