Volunteer Professionals Award for Excellence
2024 nominations are now open through December 29, 2023.
The Volunteer Professionals Award for Excellence recognizes individuals who have demonstrated exemplary service and contribution to the profession of healthcare volunteer management. The award began under the Association for Health Care Volunteer Resource Professionals (AHVRP) in 2006. With the transition of AHVRP into The Beryl Institute community in 2020, we are honored to carry on this tradition of recognition.
The award may be presented to anyone leading or impacting healthcare volunteer programs who is a current member of The Beryl Institute and meets at least one of the following criteria:
- Has demonstrated leadership in advancing the practice of healthcare volunteer management.
- Has significantly impacted the profession of volunteer management through leadership innovations, implementation of new programs, management, initiatives, authorship, teaching and/or research in healthcare volunteer management.
- Has contributed time and service to Volunteer Professionals groups, committees or organizations.
Nominations will be reviewed by co-chairs of the Volunteer Professionals Community and members of The Beryl Institute executive team. Annual recipients will be announced during ELEVATE PX, the global Patient Experience event.
