Do you know a Rising Star, want to recognize a MHIMA member for their mentoring ability, or perhaps you would like to recognize a MHIMA member for their outstanding contributions to our profession?

Now is the time to recognize and acknowledge those extraordinary people that we work with. MHIMA offers a way for you to take the opportunity to recognize others. There is no better time than the present to take a minute and nominate someone (including yourself) for doing an extraordinary job. The MHIMA awards description and application form is attached.

Awards will be presented at the upcoming Spring Meeting in Great Falls and the deadline is fast approaching.

It has been several years since we have received a nomination to recognize a MHIMA member with one of these awards. Please take a minute and nominate one of your colleagues today!
