Jan Boyer Honored as a Woman of Influence 2016 by Central Penn Business Journal
Janet L. Boyer, executive director of both the Pennsylvania Concrete Masonry Association and the Cast Stone Institute, was recently honored by the Central Penn Business Journal as a 2016 Woman of Influence. The Women of Influence awards were bestowed on Friday, June 24, 2016, at the Hilton Harrisburg, Harrisburg, Pa.
Founded in 2010, the Women of Influence program is a regional effort by the Central Penn Business Journal (CPBJ) to find and recognize female leaders who have a significant positive impact on the region’s businesses and communities. In its seventh year, the program is considered a true honor to those who are nominated and selected.
Nominators were asked to complete a cover sheet with basic contact information and to submit a narrative describing the nominee’s career accomplishments, leadership, vision, community service and mentoring activities. Judges were asked to read, review and score each of the nomination areas to find the most well-rounded, highest-scoring women.
Boyer has a bachelor’s degree in education from the Indiana University of Pennsylvania. Her affiliations include serving on the board of The Masonry Society, as board secretary for the Masonry Alliance for Codes & Standards, on the Foundation Review Committee and state alliance member of the National Concrete Masonry Association, and much more.
She says the best part of her job is “working with people who are passionate about creating beautiful, enduring structures and hardscapes.” When asked what advice she wished to pass along, Boyer said, “Owning a business is very rewarding, but it also takes time and dedication. In order to be successful, there is no such thing as an eight-hour day. You also must be a good communicator with clients and others to maintain business relationships.”
