HQI Launches Vanguard Award
Members invited to submit applications through Aug. 12

Qualified submissions will demonstrate successful implementation of strategies that have produced sustainable performance improvement in one or more of these core areas.

The Vanguard Award winner and two finalists will receive statewide recognition and a special feature at the HQI Annual Conference, Nov. 2-4 in San Diego.
