Awards Presented: Exemplary Leadership Award & Future Horizons Award Winner

Grab some breakfast and then head into the main ballroom to snag a seat and great ready for conference. The conference opener will get you pumped to get going! Then we will present two of our annual award winners: The Exemplary Leadership Award and Future Horizons Award. Be sure to be there to cheer on your colleagues.

The Exemplary Leadership Award is bestowed upon the operator member who best reflects the commitment to operational excellence that Don Marsh brought to healthcare foodservice. Don Marsh, former president of the American Society for Healthcare Food Service Administrators (ASHFSA), was dedicated to the healthcare profession and to his colleagues. He was a longtime supporter of programs to raise the professionalism of operators in the healthcare foodservice industry and was known to contribute generously. The award will recognize member contributions in their operations as well as to regional, local chapters or networking meetings.

The Future Horizons Award recognizes operator members who are new to management (less than 5 years) and demonstrate a desire for future growth through contributions to their hospitals or community.
