Call for Nominations – 2018 Kreppner Awards
The late James Kreppner was a great friend to HALCO and to people with HIV and Hepatitis C. In recognition of James’ innumerable contributions, HALCO established the Kreppner Awards in 2010. Presented at HALCO’s annual general meeting, the awards recognize the efforts of people who have made significant contributions in advocacy for and support of people with HIV or people with HIV and Hepatitis C in Ontario, Canada.
Up to two awards may be given in any one year. One recognizes outstanding achievements in the area of public service, and the other recognizes exceptional accomplishments that might go unheralded or be considered as within the private sphere (“unsung hero”). There is no requirement that awards be given every year.
Anyone who has been employed by, held office with, or received remuneration from HALCO within two years preceding the HALCO annual general meeting in autumn 2018 is ineligible to receive an award.
Nominations should provide specific details of the nominee’s accomplishments and relate the nominee’s activities to the Kreppner Award criteria. Nominations should include a minimum of two letters of support. A committee appointed by HALCO’s board of directors will acknowledge all nominations, review the nominations, and make a recommendation to HALCO’s board of directors.
Candidates selected for an award will be notified by HALCO, and if nominees accept, awards will be presented at HALCO’s 2018 annual general meeting in Autumn 2018.
The closing date for nominations is Wednesday, September 12, 2018. Late submissions will not be accepted. Nominations must include the name and contact information of the person making the nomination. Nominations may be printed, written or typed, and delivered by hand, mail, courier, FAX or e-mail to HALCO at:
