Each year TAHRA presents two awards to dedicated TAHRA members. The Richard J. Messer Excellence in Human Resources Management Award and the New Professional Award and we need nominations.
Richard J. Messer Excellence in Human Resources Management Award
This special award was designed to recognize outstanding leadership and achievements in the human resources field. The recipient is an individual who serves as a role model for others, sets the standard by which others are measured and unselfishly gives of themselves to the betterment of TAHRA, the Human Resources profession and the community. Any current member of the Tulsa Area Human Resources Association, with the exception of the Awards Committee participants, are eligible to be nominated. The award is named in Honor of Rick Messer who was one of the founding members of TAHRA who became a National Chairman of SHRM as well as the founding Chairman of HRCI.
The award consists of a $500 cash donation to the charity of the recipient's choice and a special commemorative plaque. In addition, a special biographical sketch detailing the individual's accomplishments will appear in the TAHRA newsletter.
