HOBY’s success is a direct result of the hundreds of volunteers who serve key leadership roles on its corporate boards and program committees.
HOBY proudly recognizes the outstanding accomplishments of its affiliates and volunteers throughvolunteer achievement awards. Key volunteers in the positions of Corporation President, Leadership Seminar Chairperson, Alumni Advisor and CLeW Director are invited to apply for an award in each of their categories in July. In addition, all volunteers are encouraged to nominate individuals for the HOBY Volunteer of the Year Award, presented to two volunteers selected by a committee of peers. Special certificates are also awarded.
