At the Auburn Hills Chamber of Commerce Silver & Gold Awards last Friday, Bill Pilchak was named Board Member of Year for 2013. Bill is a past Chairman and has served two terms as Vice Chairman during his five years on the Board. He was honored to have been selected, given the quality of his peers on the Board, including representatives from Chrysler, Delphi, Palace Sports, and Oakland University and other dynamic businesses and institutions. An especially gratifying part of the program involved an explanation of which current Chamber endeavors are the result of or an evolution of an idea first presented by Bill. As shown in the photo, a trophy signifying the honor will be displayed in P&C's lobby for the coming year.
Community involvement has always been important at Pilchak & Cohen and it is nice when the resulting after-hours and weekend work results in recognition. Last year, the firm was honored with the Oakland County Bar Association's Leon Hubbard Community Service Award in support of diversity for its Law Day Program at Rogers Elementary School and College Scholarship for Rogers students graduating high school.
