Dale Silver is the Client Services Manager at C-Forward, Inc. With a love for meeting new people, coupled with trying to find the best solution to fit a client needs, she has enjoyed a successful career in sales and management for over 25 years with the unexpected benefit of having most clients become a friend.
Starting in 1993, Dale became involved in the NKY Chamber, volunteering then chairing many programs, including Eggs 'N Issues, and the Golf Committee, ultimately joining the one program that changed her life in 1997, Leadership Northern Kentucky. It's not just a program, it's an experience. Walking into the Parish Kitchen, she was overwhelmed seeing people that were actually homeless. The PK provided a hot meal to guests and the impact on Dale was such that she has been coordinating schedules and preparing meals on the third Wednesday each month ever since.
LNK became Dale's passion. As Chair of the 25th & 30th anniversary parties for LNK, over $35,000 was raised to enhance the LNK experience and provide scholarships to deserving individuals.
Dale was the Chair of the 2002 LNK Class and became President of the LNK Alumni Association serving on the Chamber board for 12 years. Dale was elected and served on the Executive Committee for six years. In 2007, she assisted in forming the Chamber's highly successful Women's Initiative program, currently serving as Chair while also chairing Product Development Committee.
Dale's love for animals has her constantly rescuing dogs and cats and has fostered her involvement in Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, SPCA Fur Ball and Cincinnati Pet Food Pantry. Carrying on her father's love of baseball, she will become the next Rosie Reds President in 2016. Other volunteer work has included Board member of Covington Business Council, IHN, Hoxworth Blood Center, Steinford Toy Foundation, President/QueensPointe HOA, LNK Coordinator/World Choir Games and United Way campaigns. Having mentored several females over the past 20 years, she is proud they have become confident young ladies while building strong careers.
She's been honored to receive the Ruth A. Eger Leaders of Distinction award and Outstanding Women of Northern Kentucky award.
She has a wonderful family of siblings, nieces and nephews and their 3rd generation of volunteers. MiniChip and Gracie let her live with them in a home she built in the Incline District to house her collection of Art Deco.
The Walter L. Pieschel Award, sponsored by Heritage Bank, is named after the Chamber's first volunteer leader and is given to an individual who exemplifies outstanding service to the Chamber.
