Here are some TESTIMONIALS about Allen's work:

     "Allen Cox, who joined the board in 2010, worked with all the speed, precision and comprehensiveness one would find from Star Trek's Data in organizing our incredible Seattle trip. This is not the first time Allen has stepped up to the plate to serve our Association; he's the driving force behind our Excellence/Scholarship Awards. Allen is highly capable and, most of all, this consummate professional has done some amazingly great things for our Association."

-- Patty Anis, Executive Director,  International Food, Wine & Travel Writers Association (August 2011)
