New easier nomination form for the HDI Analyst of the Year…Nominations open to nonmember organizations

Nominations are now open for the HDI Analyst of the Year and Desktop Support Technician of the Year.  This year the written nomination will consist of only one question with the idea of making it easier to nominate top performers from your staff.  In addition, HDI has opened up this program to nonmembers organizations as well.  Please feel free to invite peer leaders to participate in the great program.

Please click here for more info and to nominate your top Analyst and/or Desktop Support personnel.

We will honor all nominees and announce our local winners at our 8th Annual Awards Luncheon on December 7th.
