Take a look at our awards below and see if anyone jumps to mind. If so, you may want to nominate that person BEFORE 07/28/2023!
This is a little over one week away... and we need nominations!!! You do NOT need to be their supervisor, or even a supervisor to complete the nomination - take this time to be selfless and let's boost each other up here. This is also a great opportunity to nominate someone who is not a current MAAWLE member who may appreciate the introduction to the positivity and support we offer.
Nominate Here: https://www.maawle.org/projects-3

Social Media/Outreach (Toni) is not eligible to run for another term in that position, so there will be a vacancy in that spot.

If you are interested in running for one of these positions, please make that notification to Alison Gontowski, Executive Board Secretary, at MAAWLESecretary@gmail.com on or before August 31, 2023.
I am genuinely looking forward to seeing each and every one of you in less than 60 days! For those of you who are going to attend the leadership panel next week, enjoy and we cannot wait to hear the feedback from that event. Please, as always, feel free to share any news with us (promotions, retirements, etc) that we can recognize on social media and/or at the conference. Thanks so much and see you soon!!
