AHMP LEADERSHIP PROFILE
Now Accepting Nominations for FY2015 Achievements
Submission Deadline May 31, 2016
PURPOSE & MISSION: The purpose of the AHMP Awards & Recognition Program is to recognize and honor individuals, chapters and organizations for outstanding contributions in education, training, research, organizational development, operations, and performance that further the objectives and the Vision-Mission-Strategy of the Alliance.
Within the AHMP National Awards & Recognition Program there are four individual awards, three chapter awards, and two AHMP “Friend” awards. Instructions, guidance, and descriptions of each award are provided at each respective page.
Generally, the award recipients will be recognized with a certificate and/or a plaque. The items will be given to the recipients at the annual AHMP national conference, where the nominees and recipients will be publicly commended for their efforts that elevate the CHMM credential and foment the success of their local chapters and the AHMP.
All awards will be given every year in which at least one nominee meets the minimum criteria. In special circumstances, an award normally given to one recipient may be given to more than one at the behest of the Awards Committee with final decision by the AHMP Board of Directors.
General Instructions and Guidance for Nominators and Reviewers
PREPARATION: There are no standard nomination forms to complete. Instead, nominators will utilize the appropriate Award Evaluation form (available by link in each award’s description) as a cover sheet for a nomination document, filling in the heading completely but leaving the rest of the form blank for the reviewers’ use. Nomination documents must contain sufficient documentation and narration to substantiate all statements and claims as to how the award criteria are met by the nominee. Refer to the Award Evaluation form/cover sheet to make sure your submittal contains everything necessary to demonstrate the criteria have been met as changes shall not be made to submittals after receipt. Separate nominations must be submitted for each award, each with its own Award Evaluation form/cover sheet. Please read the criteria carefully: most awards are based on achievements in a single year while other awards allow a longer term, so make sure the nomination is clear on the timeframe referenced by each award description.
SIGNING: For the four certified member awards, both nominators and nominees shall be current members of the AHMP in good standing with all dues paid. The three chapter awards shall be nominated and signed by the chapter presidents who shall be current members of the AHMP in good standing with all dues paid. The nominators for the two “Friend” awards shall be current members of the AHMP in good standing with all dues paid. Note: AHMP members in good standing with all dues paid who are not associated with a chapter may self-nominate and sign for the four certified member awards.
SUBMITTAL: Nominations with their cover sheets must be received by AHMP by May 31. Nominations must be submitted electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org.
REVIEW: The Awards Committee’s Board liaison will be provided with a list of nominators and nominees to perform verification of AHMP membership and paid dues with the cooperation of the AHMP office. Results of the records search will be provided to the Committee chair. Meanwhile, the Awards Committee will review nominations and select recipients for the certified member awards and the chapter awards. The AHMP Board of Directors will review nominations and select recipients for the “Friend” awards with assistance by the Committee if requested. If the Awards Committee experiences ties or disputes in designation of any award winner(s), the Board of Directors will assist in the resolution.
QUESTIONS: Questions regarding the program or its implementation should be directed to the AHMP Awards Committee Chairperson at email@example.com.
