2017 HCAW Annual Awards
Now is the time to write about your employees or volunteers in home care, home health, or hospice whose service is deserving of honor and recognition. Your staff, colleagues and volunteers deserve our praise. These are the individuals who make your company better by being a part of it. The hardest working contributors to the in-home service industry justly deserve this recognition. These are the people who truly make a difference in the lives of others. These individuals are our quiet heroes who go unnoticed. Let us honor and award them.
As you write your scenario about these people, reach deep into your heart to tell their stories with some specifics: why they are different, why they stand out, and why they deserve this prestige’s recognition. The more heartfelt a submission is, the better chance that person has in being chosen.
Applications must be completed by a member in your agency and submitted to HCAW by March 17, 2017.
Each agency may submit only one nominee per category. The Awards Committee will review the nominations and choose one winner from each category. The awards will be presented at a special luncheon on Thursday, April 27th, 2017 during our Spring Conference. If you want a real treat, be sure to attend the luncheon to feel the excitement, witness the humility, and see the pride on the faces of the recipients and their respective agencies. On this day everyone is a winner! This day makes all of us proud!
