The Rewards of Serving

Posted By Loraine A. Huchler CMC FIMC, Thursday, May 30, 2013


- for a job well done

- for a significant accomplishment

- for a singular achievement,

- for making a difference.

Every year we recognize members of the Institute for their contributions to our organization, to their community and to the profession.

But why?

Dale Carnegie put it best: everyone needs:

- acceptance

- approval and

- appreciation.

I’ll go one step further – recognition of contributions and achievements is essential to the success of an organization.

As a membership organization, IMC USA has a wonderful culture of recognition of our members who serve in leadership positions, who contribute their time, energy and talent to our community and who inspire others to serve.

Our numerous awards recognize our members’ contributions in a variety of ways:

Certificate of Appreciation

Recognition of Achievement

Community Service Award*

Distinguished Service Award*

Chapter Leadership Award*

Chair Leadership Award*

Lifetime Achievement Award*

Fellow of the Institute of Management Consultants*

As I listened to the remarks from our newly-elected Fellows last year at GROW!, I was struck by the recurring themes of the value of the award for the recipient. Over and over again, they talked about the skills they had learned from their service to the Institute, how they had grown personally, and by the deep, life-long friendships with other members.

I want to encourage you to get involved in IMC USA and experience the rewards of belonging and serving.

And I want to encourage you to nominate fellow members who have made a contribution, achievement or served the organization – especially if they’ve played an important role in your professional growth.

Say tuned; in my next blog, I’ll be talking about one of the numerous opportunities available to serve. 




For more information about our awards, please visit Regards,Loraine *Awarded at our annual conference, GROW!; application deadline: July 1; please contact Kathie Nelson, Chair, Recognition & Awards Committee, or contact our Executive Director, Gail McCauley,

Thank you for the reminder, Loraine.

As the new chair for the Recognition & Awards Committee I'd like to encourage you to take a moment to visit the Awards page on the IMC site. Consider submitting the names of your fellow members who have made a difference in your chapter, in your professional development, or in the community at large. Contribution deserves to be recognized.
