-->2014 AUA Monarch Professional Award - Due March 3rd

As the evaluation cycle for Administrative/Professional (AP) faculty comes to an end later this semester, a good way to recognize and celebrate the success stories of a colleague for the past academic year is to nominate him/her for one of our recognition opportunities.  We encourage you to nominate a fellow AP faculty member for one of our recognition opportunities this year.  Recipients of each award will receive a $500 recognition bonus, an individual plaque, an engraved nameplate on the University Awards Wall in Webb Center, and will be recognized at the AUA Awards Breakfast and the University Faculty Awards Dinner at the end of the spring semester.  Questions concerning the awards may be directed to Trey Mayo, AUA President, at rmayo@odu.edu.  We look forward to receiving your nominations.
