This committee solicits entries, reviews all submissions, and selects each years’ winners.

Goal I, Objective 1: Increase opportunities for communication and networking among members.

Goal I, Objective 3: Increase leadership development offerings that will enhance career advancement.

The committee is expected to work across the Association to complete these charges.  Many committees may have some overlap with other committees and are encouraged to reach out to other groups to connect the work. Additional charges may be presented to the committee, or by the committee, during the year as new initiatives arise.
