2011/2012 Recognition Program


Staff Peer Awards


The ABA Staff Peer Awards Program is a recognition program that allows ABA staff to recognize the work of their colleagues. Awards are presented annually in the following categories: Customer Service, Problem Solver, Teamwork, Positive Attitude, Professionalism, and new for 2012, Innovation.

Awardees are selected by a team of 2011 award recipients. This year's selection team included:

  • Jorge Chavez, Facilities Services
  • Brian Geimer, Reprographics
  • Norman Kwong, Budget Planning & Administration
  • Edelsa Reyes, Space Management
  • Debbie Smith, Accounts Payable
  • Agustin Yaya, Public Safety

This year, the selection committee felt they had such strong candidates for the Customer Service category that two people were equally deserving. The selection committee recommended both for awards for their outstanding achievements. Awards were presented in person at each recipient's office, amongst their managers, coworkers, and friends. ABA received close to 50 nominations. Shown below are photos of the 2012 Staff Peer Award recipients, as well as a list of all nominees.
