IHRSA Awards Deadline in Two Weeks

IHRSA’s Outstanding Community Service Award and Julie Main Woman Leader Scholarship are awarded annually both to recognize excellence and to discover and share industry best practices. 

Applications for the 2015 awards are now being accepted. Apply today or encourage a colleague to apply! Applications must be received by Nov. 14, 2014. Recipients will be honored during IHRSA 2-15 34th Annual International Convention & Trade Show in Los Angeles at an awards presentation to include a video highlighting their achievements. 

The Outstanding Community Service Award is designed to recognize the IHRSA member that has done a remarkable job serving its local community. The award serves to provide an example of outstanding community service that can be emulated by other clubs.

In addition, IHRSA honors the legacy of Julie Main -- an industry leader, cancer activist, and former president of IHRSA – by offering a full scholarship to attend IHRSA 2015. The scholarship, which is valued at US$3,000, was established to recognize women who exemplify what Julie stood for - professionalism, excellence, courage, perseverance, and tireless contribution to the industry and community.
