We are proud to open the nomination process for the OAC’s 2014 Annual Awards that will be presented on Saturday evening, September 27th, at the 3rd Annual Your Weight Matters National Convention in Orlando, FL.

OAC’s Annual Awards Program honors outstanding OAC members and volunteers for their tireless efforts to help individuals affected by obesity through education, advocacy and support. Our members truly drive the successes of the OAC, and we are excited to celebrate the individuals that have made a direct impact in advancing the goals and mission of the OAC.

During the awards ceremony, held in conjunction with the 2014 National Convention in Orlando, we will present seven awards in key areas of focus for the OAC. A complete list of the awards to be presented may be found to the right. Of the seven awards, four are open to the membership to submit nominations. The remaining award recipients will be selected by the OAC Nominating Committee (see right to view members).
