Past Toms River Rotary President Chris Christiansen, CEO of Air Process Systems, (shown on right) has received the District 7505 Vocational Service Award for 2023. The Award recognizes how Chris uses his professional skills in both business leadership and environmental stewardship to solve local problems, improve his community, to train his employees, to mentor young people and to set a vocational example to other Rotarians. His leadership skills have been especially visible as the co-chair of “Sailfest New Jersey” – a festival which attracts over 15,000 visitors to the Toms River area. He has truly “paid it forward” through his leadership and advocacy of Rotary's Vocational Service Ideals. The Award was presented by Assistant District Governor Steven Neuner (on left).
