5 Benefits of Earning an Excellence Award

  2. Boost morale by sharing the recognition with staff who contributed to your initiative’s success.
  3. Demonstrate your commitment to managing risk and protecting the Fund’s financial strength. After all, we're stronger together.
  4. Foster community trust that your organization serves as a good steward of its resources.
  5. Receive a commemorative plaque, a $1,000 risk management honorarium, and recognition in TASB and Fund publications.
