Beginning in 2013, IUPUI’s Staff Council began awarding the Staff Council Outstanding New Member award to an extraordinary first term Council member annually. The intention of this award is to honor a member who has jumped in with both feet to the work of the Council. He or she is active both within the greater Council and their committee, serving with consistency and creativity, whether in a leadership role or not. The ideal honoree has demonstrated great commitment to serving his or her fellow staff throughout the term.
The Staff Council Outstanding New Member award is open to all current IUPUI Staff Council members serving their first term. Self-nominations and nominations of others are welcome. All nominees for the Outstanding New Member award will receive a letter of notification by email that they have been nominated for the award. The award recipient will receive a letter of congratulations, the appropriate supervisor will be notified, and an award. The winner will be honored at the IUPUI Staff Council retreat in July and at the first meeting of the following year. If selected as the Council Outstanding New Member, the winner will be disqualified from winning the Member of the Year or Committee Chair of the Year awards for this year.
To nominate yourself or an individual, you must complete the nomination form by May 31, 2017 by 5 p.m. Click here to submit your forms online. If you prefer not to submit your entry online, you may download the nomination form and submit it to the Staff Council Rewards & Recognition Committee, c/o Janet Fulper, Office of the Bursar, WW 1100, Indianapolis, IN 46202 or at email@example.com. We will honor the recipients of these awards at our Staff Council Retreat on July 21st.
