The PMF Honorary Awards Program aims to recognize past and present federal civil servants that have been instrumental to the success of the PMF Program and the PMF community. Recognition is a key principle and practice of successful leadership and management and the PMF Program Office is excited to be able to provide this opportunity annually to recognize several of the many stakeholders across the PMF community who through their dedication and service to the program make a lasting impact. We began this annual tradition in 2018 as part of our PMF 40th Anniversary Celebration and we look forward to hosting the awards again this year in the summer of 2021.
