The AAVMC Communications Excellence Award will be Awarded at the 2016 AVAP Annual Conference this August!
The “AAVMC Communications Excellence Award” is designed to recognize the important role communications plays in advancing academic veterinary medicine and the profession. It also seeks to inspire higher levels of performance among our members. During this 50th anniversary year, the award will also recognize member engagement with the AAVMC’s 50th Anniversary program. In addition to overall program excellence, judging criteria will recognize grassroots institutional participation in anniversary communication programs.
The award includes a $1,000 honorarium, a plaque, and recognition during the annual meeting of the Association of Veterinary Advancement Professionals (AVAP). The recipient is expected to attend the AVAP meeting held in conjunction with the 2016 annual meeting of the AVMA in San Antonio, Texas to receive the award.
Nominations are welcome from any individual employed by an AAVMC member institution and candidates may nominate themselves. Nominators are encouraged to submit materials electronically via email. Hard copy will be accepted if postmarked by the deadline for submission.
The individual selected as the 2016 AAVMC Communication Excellence Award could be asked to present at the AVAP conference on Wednesday as part of the Communications Track Session.
