Salisbury Jaycees Chairperson of the Board Emily Nock, of Ocean City, MD, was inducted into the Maryland Jaycees Militia during the chapter’s 75th anniversary gala, held recently at the Wicomico Youth & Civic Center.
Militia induction is the highest Jaycees honor in the state, recognizing the top 1 percent of Maryland Jaycees and granting lifetime membership in the organization.
Nock joined the Jaycees in 2011 after volunteering for the chapter’s annual Salisbury Christmas Parade. She joined the board of directors in 2013. In 2014, she was elected president, leading the chapter to awards proclaiming Salisbury the No. 1 Jaycees chapter in Maryland and one of the top 10 chapters in the U.S. She also has chaired projects including the Salisbury Christmas Parade, the 75th anniversary gala and this year’s Random Acts of Kindness campaign, which was adopted by other Jaycees organizations nationwide.
Beyond Salisbury, she currently serves as the Maryland Jaycees’ membership vice president and is a member of the JCI USA Strategic Planning Committee and Training Task Force. Earlier this year, JCI USA, the Jaycees’ national parent organization, named her among the top local Jaycees presidents in the U.S., recognizing her work in 2014.
In addition to the Jaycees, Nock serves on the board of directors of the American Red Cross Lower Shore Chapter and the Salisbury Area Chamber of Commerce Foundation. She is executive vice president of the Robert W. Nock Insurance Agency in Salisbury.
Serving Maryland’s Lower Eastern Shore since 1940, the Salisbury Jaycees is a community service, social and leadership training organization for men and women ages 18-40. For more information visit the chapter’s website at www.salisburyjc.com or Facebook page at www.facebook.com/salisburyjaycees.
