Submit your stories, videos and photos to show us how you’ve been making a difference in your members’ lives. The stories collected will then be shared in connection with upcoming events, along with other operations and technology professionals. This alternative awards campaign is a transition from the usual annual awards for this year only. Join us in celebrating your achievements and those of your peers. Submissions will be accepted through August 10, 2020.
