VICA honors two today

first_imgVAN NUYS – The Valley Industry and Commerce Association will honor two of its members and elect a new board at its 58th annual meeting today. Pete Satuloff, a certified public accountant and principal at the Woodland Hills firm Anderson, Satuloff, Machado & Mendelsohn, will receive this year’s Harmon Ballin award for community service. “Pete Satuloff is just one of those unsung heroes who has been involved with VICA for a long time,” said VICA CEO Brendan Huffman. Satuloff has been a VICA board member since 1988 and for 17 years has served as the treasurer, what Huffman calls a “thankless task.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWhicker: Clemson demonstrates that it’s tough to knock out the champFor more than two decades, Satuloff has served as the treasurer of the Rotary Club of Van Nuys and the Van Nuys Rotary Club Foundation. He is also actively involved with the Fernando Awards, the Mid Valley Community Police Council and the Mid Valley YMCA. Pegi Matsuda, publisher of the San Fernando Valley Business Journal, will receive the second annual President’s Award for assisting and supporting VICA staff. Matsuda was named publisher of the journal in 2001 and was the associate publisher since 1999. “Pegi has put so much energy into VICA, not just board support but she has been helpful to staff,” Huffman said. “When we need someone with good ideas, she is there. When we need someone to lead a tedious but necessary task force, she steps up.” Cheryl Fair, news director at KABC (Channel 7) Eyewitness News, will be speaking about the role a television station plays in a community. In 1994 Fair became the first female news director at Channel 7 in Los Angeles. On her first day at work she directed coverage of the O.J. Simpson car chase. The VICA meeting is being held at the Airtel Plaza Hotel in Van Nuys from 11:15 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Tickets are $55 for members and a second ticket is half off.
