As I alluded to in my last E News column, I can now confirm that we have invested in a new system that will make it significantly easier and smoother when it comes to submitting an entry for the AIB Professional Excellence Awards.

What this means in real terms is ‘Award Force’ will now:

  • Save time and money on administration for the user
  • Create a great experience for our community of entrants and judges of the Awards program
  • See an increase in participation levels of the Awards program
  • Be a system that delivers under pressure

With all of this in mind, we will soon be opening nominations for next year’s Awards with a deadline for submissions of March 2019.

I am also pleased to share with you our new branding for our National Professional Excellence Awards program. This symbolises the ‘building blocks’ of our organisation as we continue to grow and prosper. All staff and a body of dedicated volunteers continue to work hard in changing the face of the organisation as well as how it is regarded in the general marketplace.

While we certainly have not arrived, the journey is well and truly underway.

Have a great weekend ahead everyone.
