BAYSIDE, NY - Tourette Association of America (TAA), the premier national non-profit organization serving the Tourette Syndrome (TS) and Tic Disorder community, has announced that Chatham resident Domenick A. Cama, President and Chief Operating Officer of Investors Bancorp and Investors Bank, will be honored at the organization’s annual Gala on Thursday, Nov. 15 at CAPITALE in the Bowery.
“Domenick is a leader in the community and one who continues to give back,” said Amanda Talty, President and CEO of the Tourette Association of America. “We honor him at this year’s Gala for his willingness to help raise awareness and funds to make life better for all people affected by Tourette and Tic Disorders.”
Cama was appointed to the Board of Directors of Investors Bancorp and Investors Bank in January 2011. In his role as President & COO, Mr. Cama works closely with other members of the executive management team to manage the daily operations of the Company.
