DRI CANADA - Awards of Excellence Program

The DRI CANADA Awards of Excellence Program for 2016 is now open to receive applications.  Interest in the DRI CANADA Awards of Excellence program has grown year over year, and for 2015, we are introducing some new and exciting changes to the process.  This is our 9th year for the DRI CANADA Awards of Excellence and we are again partnering with the World Conference on Disaster Management (WCDM) where the awards will be presented. 
 
This year, there are four (4) separate categories of the DRI CANADA Awards of Excellence: The DRI CANADA Awards of Excellence honour individuals who are leaders and innovators in the fields of Business Continuity and Technology Recovery (BC/DR).  DRI CANADA believes that it is our duty to recognize and celebrate excellence and we have committed to continuing the Awards of Excellence program to achieve this strategic goal.  DRI CANADA members will also be invited to select the recipient for the Achievement of the Year award through an on-line voting process.  The DRI CANADA Awards of Excellence Team is excited about the process for selecting the recipient for the Lifetime Achievement, Student  and Volunteer of the Year awards.
 
Nominations for the Awards of Excellence program open on November 23, 2015 and we are looking forward to receiving your nominations and reviewing your submissions. The DRI CANADA Awards of Excellence provide a unique opportunity for professionals to be publicly acknowledged as leaders in their field.  The process is straight forward and it’s easy to enter – click on the link below for more detail on each category and the application process.  Nominations are open until April 13th, 2016.
