Dear MPI PHL Member:

    We are enjoying another successful year at MPI PHL thanks to the commitment and dedication of our Chapter members. It is once again time to recognize those members and peers who have made outstanding association/industry contributions in leadership and professionalism.

    The Awards Committee is currently soliciting nominations for Chapter Awards in five categories:Planner of the Year, Supplier of the Year, Tomorrow’s Leader, Chapter Leader, and Volunteer of the Year. This is your chance to highlight and honor a member or members that you feel have gone above and beyond when it comes to Chapter and industry involvement. The five categories are as follows:

    Planner of the Year – This award is presented annually to a planner member of MPI PHL in recognition of outstanding MPI PHL and industry contributions, leadership, community involvement, and professionalism.

    Supplier of the Year – This award is presented annually to a supplier member of MPI PHL in recognition of outstanding MPI PHL and industry contributions, leadership, community involvement, and professionalism.

    Tomorrow’s Leader – This award is presented annually to a member of MPI PHL who has made outstanding contributions to both MPI PHL and the industry. Nominees in this category must have joined MPI no earlier than 1/1/2015.

    Chapter Leader – This award is presented annually to a member of MPI PHL who motivates others, stimulates volunteer functions, is involved in the community, and acts as a catalyst to cause exceptional results that benefit and positively impact the chapter.

    Volunteer of the Year – The annual Volunteer of the Year Award is directly tied to the monthly Shining Star Award. The Shining Star nominations are open year-round. The annual award has the same criteria as the monthly award. To be eligible for Volunteer of the Year, you must have been awarded the Shining Star between June 1, 2016 and April 30, 2017.

    Awards are based on continuous involvement, commitment, and achievement with an emphasis on the 2016-2017 fiscal year. Any member in good standing can use the nomination form to nominate candidates. Members in good standing are defined as those whose membership dues are current.

    ADDITIONAL AWARDS:

    Venue of the Year - This award is intended to honor a venue which hosted a MPI PHL event in the preceding year, and which is judged to be the best venue among those which are eligible. The award is determined by a vote of the chapter’s membership. To be eligible for the award, a venue must have hosted a MPI PHL event between June 1, 2016 and April 30, 2017. This Award is voted on by MPI PHL membership via Survey Monkey.

    Committee of the Year - This award is presented annually to a MPI PHL committee which has made outstanding contributions to the chapter in the current chapter year. This award is determined by a vote of the Awards Committee. All committees will be automatically reviewed and considered by the Awards Committee.

    SPECIAL AWARD:

    President’s Award - This award is given to an individual or organization who have contributed and made a positive impact to the Hospitality Industry, especially in the Philadelphia area. It is presented solely on the decision of the outgoing MPI PHL President. The winner is not required to be a member of the chapter.
