HBA Europe is pleased to announce the Spark award winners in 2017

This year for the first time, the HBA has started a peer-to-peer recognition program - the Spark award - which honors HBA volunteers who have distinguished themselves in areas such as attitude, collaboration, pitching in, consistency, leadership and building community by supporting others. With this new approach, the HBA is providing an easy way to recognize our volunteers who have gone “above and beyond” their role, or who have embodied one of our core values through their behavior and action.

If you are a HBA volunteer nominate another volunteer for his or her extraordinary contribution to the HBA.

Congratulations to the winners of the Spark award in 2017. Every one of you deserves thanks for the outstanding job you do. Thank you for your time and dedication to the HBA. It truly makes a difference.

Michal was and is a major and very important key factor for the reactivation of our Berlin HBA chapter. She always encouraged the rest of the team to get the chapter running and helped to introduce the HBA to new participants. Her enthusiastic marketing approach already helped to approach new participants and arise interest in HBA topics. At the beginning of HBA chapter work, it is crucial to have encouraging and supporting volunteers and Michal was a very valuable member of the team to get the chapter running.” - Ulrike Eberhardt

Michal has constantly driven the marketing activities for the Berlin chapter and despite many challenges in processes, suddenly raising issues and needs of the team members. She was stepping in last minute to support marketing activities when event numbers had not yet reached the necessary peak. In addition, she supported extra marketing activities and ideas last minute. Her continuous support to HBA Berlin was very valuable.” - Xenia von Maltzan
