TMA Chicago/Midwest Chapter Annual Awards Program


On an annual basis, the TMA Chicago/Midwest Chapter hosts an awards program that invites members to be recognized and awarded for their outstanding work in the industry and/or within the Turnaround Management Association organization.  This is an opportunity for you and your company to receive area-wide recognition and publicity.  In addition to being honored by the TMA Chicago/Midwest Chapter at the Annaul Executive Speakers Forum in November, your entry will be used in our public relations efforts.  In prior years, TMA award winners were featured in national and local media as well as at multiple TMA events.  So, don't wait, get your entry in today.  Award Categories include:
