Each ABWA member has the opportunity to recognize a key individual who has supported this chapter, women in business, and local charities. 

Congratulations to Linda Deyo, the 2011 Business Associate of the Year!

Linda Deyo has been a table sponsor twice, brings a door prize each month, 2011 Boat Poker Run Goodie Bag Chair, and has been elected Emerald Coast Chapter 2011-12 Secretary.

She is an active member of the Greater Fort Walton Beach Chamber of Commerce; she was a lead/major sponsor for the 4th quarter 20rc Panhandle Area Council meeting and is a 2011 Boat Poker Run Sponsor. She supports and encourages other women owned businesses and tries to guide young women to own their own businesses. As a business owner, she truly cares and has a passion for what she does for her customers. You can rest assure that when you go to Perfect Occasions, Linda will always help you or make a suggestion for that perfect gift for that special someone. Again, her strength is truly caring and it shows in the way she operates her business and how she cares as an ABWA member volunteering and helping the chapter in so many ways.
