News You Can Use: Nominations for the 2009 Benny Awards are open

I know the last six months or so have been rough for you, pros, and you deserve a long vacation and a big bonus. I can't give you that, but I can offer you the opportunity to get some applause, a pretty cool trophy and a decent-sized check for a job well done.

To take advantage, nominate yourself or a colleague for the 2009 Benny Awards, presented by Employee Benefit News in partnership with corporate sponsor VSP Vision Care, the nation's largest provider of eyecare wellness benefits. The Bennys recognize excellence and innovation in the employee benefits/human resources field, and are organized into five categories:
* Benefits Professional of the Year
* Benefits Leadership — Health Care
* Benefits Leadership — Retirement Planning
* Benefits Leadership — Judges' Choice
* The VSP GetFit Award

The awards will be presented at EBN's annual Benefits Forum & Expo, to be held this year Sept. 13-15 in Atlanta, thus the applause and trophy I mentioned.

Now, about that check: The winner of the Benefits Professional of the Year award receives a cash award of $3,000 and $1,000 in travel expenses to attend BF&E '09. Each of the other three leadership award winners will receive $1,000 apiece and $750 in travel expenses.
