Call for Prevention Professionals to serve on the 2020 Prevention Awards of Excellence Review Team

What is involved?  The Review Team reviews the previous year’s Overview and Nomination Packet documents during January and February, making suggestions on improvements, suggestions on how to market the awards to encourage more participation, and to make suggestion on how to simplify the nomination process.  Meetings are via GoToMeeting or Skype for Business.  Award nominations are accepted during the April – August time frame; there is no Review Team meetings or duties during the nomination period.  However, during the first two weeks of September, Review Team members are asked to review and rate nominations.  The nomination reviews can take 30-45 minutes per nomination; total time involved for nomination review will depend on the number of nominations received.  After the 2020 Prevention Summit and Awards Ceremony, the Review Team may be asked to review the process and make suggestions for improvement.

 

Want to be on the team?  Martha Williams will be putting the 2020 Review Team together by December 31, 2019.  She is looking for 5 – 6 Prevention Professionals of varying prevention experience levels to join the Team.  Please contact her by email at Martha.williams@hca.wa.gov.
