The International Association of Workforce Professionals (IAWP) has updated its acclaimed awards program to increase emphasis on achievement, innovation and recognize those who have made a positive difference in the workforce profession.
The awards submission process has been enhanced as well. To submit an award application, simply complete a short online form, download the required files and submit electronically.
IAWP offers awards in three categories:
Innovation in Workforce Systems – recognizing individuals, groups, and organizations for extraordinary innovation that directly or indirectly impacts systems, customers, or professionals within the workforce system.
Outstanding Service to IAWP – recognizing the outstanding work of members in service to the association.
Chapter Excellence – recognizing IAWP chapters that are going above and beyond in their work and service to members and the association in the areas of professional development, marketing and communication, membership, and community involvement.
IAWP also recognizes chapters and individuals for outstanding efforts in promoting membership. The IAWP Executive Director and International President may also provide awards at their discretion for outstanding work in the association and profession.
All award applications must be received by March 15, 2018. Award winners will be announced during the 2018 Workforce Development Conference, this June in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Unless otherwise noted, awards nominations are for work or service completed during the previous calendar year (i.e. nomination in 2018 is for work or service in 2017), henceforth referred to as the contest year.
