AWARE’s Corporate Congress is back on this year after a brief hiatus. The much-anticipated event is an integral part of AWARE’s strategic planning, and it’s designed to solicit and use input from stakeholders, staff, management and the people we serve. The process helps with overall management of the organization and enlists the help of delegates representing each of AWARE’s services and communities.
This year’s event…
AWARE’s 2021 Corporate Congress is scheduled for June 16-18, 2021, at the Great Northern Hotel in Helena, Montana. This marks the first time the event has been held away from Anaconda. It’s part of a new tradition of rotating Corporate Congress to different communities within Montana.
This year’s Corporate Congress will feature an awards banquet that honors and recognizes employees and stakeholders who have recently gone above and beyond in their duties. It’s a time for celebration, recognition, camaraderie and more! Please keep an eye out for our Call for Award Nominations.
AWARE employees are eligible to be nominated as delegates who work to pass bills that improve the organization.
Service Delegates represent AWARE services from across the entire state. They are responsible for identifying issues important to the best practice delivery of their service. Service delegates become familiar and comfortable with all policies and procedures in their service area. Delegates work to improve services for clients.
Community Delegates represent the needs and issues facing their community. They are responsible for obtaining feedback from various community stakeholders, including but not limited to partners, managers/supervisors, and clients. The information is used to address any identified issues at Corporate Congress. The community delegate is encouraged to talk with as many community people as possible so that they can represent the needs and issues facing their unique community.
We can’t tell you how thrilled we are to be bringing back this popular, and unique event. It brings all levels of our statewide organization together so that we can strive for continual improvement as we collectively further our mission of helping people live independent lives.
