Annual Awards Open for Nomination – Deadline to Submit a Nomination July 8

We are excited to open up the OAC’s 2015 Annual Award nomination process that will be presented on Saturday evening, August 15th, at the 4rd Annual Your Weight Matters National Convention in San Antonio, TX.

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 2015 National Convention in San Antonio, 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).

If you know someone who is deserving of one or more of the OAC’s awards, we encourage you to submit a nomination using the below links. Self-nominations are also welcomed and accepted.
