Deadline for WHA Board and Award Nominations Extended to August 30

August 20, 2019

Nominations are now being accepted for WHA’s annual Distinguished Service Award and Trustee Award. These important awards recognize those who display leadership, dedication and professionalism to their community or the Association.

You may know someone in your region, hospital, or on your Board of Directors who deserves such an honor. You now have an opportunity to nominate them for one of these annual awards:

  • Distinguished Service Award is presented to a senior health care executive who has made an exemplary commitment to WHA, his/her hospital, and the communities he/she serves. 
  • Trustee Award honors a trustee of a WHA member organization who has made an exemplary commitment to his/her community and to the organization on whose board he/she serves. 
Administrators, trustees, senior managers, nurse leaders, volunteers and others are encouraged to review the criteria for the awards and consider nominating someone to receive one of these honors. Information on these two awards can be found on the WHA website

The Nominating committee will also make recommendations on new WHA Board members. WHA members interested in being considered for, or wish to submit a candidate for, an At-Large WHA Board seat or the Chair-Elect position should contact either WHA President Eric Borgerding or WHA Nominating Committee Chair Robert Van Meeteren.

Please submit nominations for both the awards and WHA Board of Directors no later than. Friday, August 30.
