Honors & Awards Committee


The responsibility of this committee is to establish standards, evaluate candidates, and select recipients for the awards and scholarships given by the Association. The committee includes members in varying employment settings.  Committee involvement is very important in November - January.  During the remainder of the year, we are working to archive Honors & Awards information and continue honoring our awardees.
