End of the Year Recognition

End-Of-Year Awards Guide 2020-21

 

End-of-year awards will be presented at the RHA Awards Banquet, tentatively scheduled for Saturday, May 1st. Applications and bids (email bids to NCC at rhancc@email.arizona.edu) are due April 17th. Google Forms for application awards are on this page, will be posted on the RHA website, and released via the RHA listserv. The General Body will decide who receives the bidded-for awards via a majority vote on April 22nd; to ensure that reps are prepared prior to the discussion, Hall Councils must fill out a bid evaluation form which the NCC will verify at the beginning of the General Body meeting. This form will ask you to name a pro and a con of each bid and which you’re most likely to vote for.
