Todd took attendees on a tour of the Columbia IT scene, which includes one of the largest Insurance Technology clusters in the country, three well known national conferences, a healthy User Group environment, and has had a gaggle of local and regional press lately.

In addition, Columbia was recently recognized by the Bay Area Council as the 2nd fastest growing city in the country from 2010-2011 in terms of High Tech job growth, and #4 from 2006-2011. These are fantastic numbers, and amazingly, few people in the Columbia and Midlands area are aware of them.

Comments Off on Danny Williams named 2013 Sertoman of the Year

Danny Williams was named the 2013 Sertoman of the Year at the club’s meeting hosted by DuPre’s at 300 Senate Street. The award is given annually by the Columbia Sertoma Club to recognize the Sertoma member that most represents the values of Sertoma – commitment to public service and true “Service to Mankind”.

Mr. Williams served as both President and Chairman of the club during 2013. In these positions he ran club meetings, oversaw multiple boards and committees, and provided invaluable guidance in charting the course forward and keeping the club true to it’s mission, which is Service to Mankind.

In addition to his recent service, Danny has been a member of Sertoma since 1997, has attended numerous district, regional and national conventions, and has participated in and lead many of the club’s fundraising and service events, most notably the Carolina Children’s Home Fundraiser that has raised more than $3.6 million since 1968.
His commitment to public service is envious and quite frankly knows few bounds. He is an example of what a Sertoman should be.
