Summit Awards:

In 1999, the California State Council of SHRM started the Summit Award. The Summit Award requires a chapter to meet a minimum standard to be considered for the award. Once the standard is met then the State Director, the State-Director Elect, and the Past State Director reviews the entries and determines the award winner based on the creativity/innovation of the item(s) submitted, how the innovative practice(s) have benefited their chapter and their members, and how the innovative practice(s) have contributed to enhancing the professionalism of the chapter, their members, and the HR profession and/or their local community.
