AHF Seeks Leadership Intern Nominations
The Association for Healthcare Foodservice has launched the nominations process for its annual awards program honoring leaders transforming foodservice. In addition to six categories ranging from leadership excellence to improved operations, AHF has launched a Chapter of the Year award to honor a local chapter that promotes AHF's mission, supports member development and self-operation, and has a measureable impact on the community.

- Future Horizon, recognizing operator members who are new to management and who demonstrate a desire for future growth through contributions to their hospitals or community.
- Spotlight, honoring an operator member who has enhanced operations through technology, sustainability, healthy initiatives, community impact, mergers/acquisitions, recruitment/retention, program development, implementation, innovation and/or creative use of managing finances.
- Exemplary leadership, citing an operator or non-operator member who best reflects the commitment to operational excellence that Don Marsh brought to healthcare foodservice.
- Partnership in leadership, recognizing up to three operator member facilities with an administrative/foodservice partnership that demonstrate a strong commitment to self-operation that currently supports the foodservice leadership team.
