TORONTO, ON -- (Marketwired) -- 05/14/14 -- Immee Chee Wah, Vice President of Business Planning for Rogers Publishing, has been named Magazines Canada's Volunteer of the Year for 2013, Magazines Canada announced today.
An industry leader willing to take on the tough files, Immee Chee Wah serves as the magazine media representative on the board of directors of Access Copyright, and is a volunteer member of the Blue Box committee of Magazines Canada.

"We thank Immee for her generosity in sharing a unique understanding of complex issues."
In her current role, Chee Wah oversees production and logistics for all Rogers magazines and is also responsible for regulatory matters.
