The AAJA National Secretary, on behalf of the executive officers, puts out an annual call for nominees for the Member of the Year, President of the Year and Chapter of the Year.
Here’s what to look for:
Which AAJA member has gone above and beyond, locally or on the national level? Which chapter president has done the most outstanding work? Which one of our 21 chapters sets the standard for excellence?
Consider nominees primarily for the work accomplished in the previous calendar year (2011). But also take into account a chapter’s or individual’s overall body of work on behalf of AAJA.
We’ll honor the winners during the UNITY12 convention in Las Vegas. The deadline for submissions is Tuesday, May 15.
To submit a recommendation, simply e-mail AAJA National Secretary Theodore Kim the following information:
- Name of the person making the recommendation (self-nominations are accepted).
- Name of the recommended person or chapter.
- Category (Member, President or Chapter).
- Short statement about why the recommended person/chapter should be recognized. Please include examples that demonstrate excellence on behalf of AAJA.
Those recommended for Member of the Year must have been AAJA members in 2011. If you are nominating in the President category, chapter Co-Presidents must both be included. Nominees for Chapter of the Year must be chapters in good standing.
Take a few moments to help AAJA’s officers salute the good work that is happening around the organization. If you need more information or for a complete list of previous award winners, please e-mail AAJA National Secretary Theodore Kim.
