Does your agency have a program or process that deserves recognition? If so, consider nominating your agency for an Award for Excellence. Awards are given for small, medium and large agencies. Agencies must have a minimum of three years of consecutive membership to receive the award.

In addition, there are two options for recognizing individuals: The Warner W. Stockberger Achievement Award is given annually to a person in public or private life who has made outstanding contributions in the field of public sector personnel management. Recipients are chosen without regard to membership status.

Awards will be presented during the 2016 IPMA-HR International Training Conference & Expo, which will be held September 18-21 in Kansas City, MO.

Deadline for award nominations are now June 6, 2016.
