The International Board of Phi Beta Mu commends all members of our profession for their dedication and inspiration during the challenges of the past year. Due to the pandemic, we will make the presentation to our 2020 award winners at the 2021 Midwest Clinic.
A highlight of the annual Phi Beta Mu Awards Breakfast is the opportunity to honour individuals who have made significant contributions to our profession. Even as we honour them they continue to inspire us with their wisdom and demeanor. In lieu of the opportunity to gather this year, we share the acceptance speech of Chip Averwater, Outstanding Contributor 2016.
“I’m sure all of us in this room occasionally ask ourselves how and why we got into this field. You know, like “What were we thinking?!” I remember a few situations that influenced me.”
