Call for 2015 Nominations







Chicagoland HDI Chapter Schedule
9/15 to 10/23 – Nominations accepted
11/1 to 11/30 – Phone interviews
12/3 – Awards luncheon and keynote speaker

It’s that time of year again!  Why not nominate your best analyst or desktop technician for an HDI award?  It’s a great way to show your appreciation for the work they do.

The Chicagoland HDI chapter has been proud to provide the Midwest Region Analyst of the Year finalist each of the last two years (Johnny Chamboullides, Advocate Health Care and Kaleen McDowell, Accenture).  Let’s make it a threepeat!

As a Support Analyst for over 12 years, I was nominated by my Team Lead for the HDI Analyst of the Year award. After receiving the award, HDI has propelled my career into another direction. Because of this award and HDI, my skills have grown considerably due to the HDI conference experience and various speakers which allowed me to utilize key strategies within my team. This organization has been extremely invaluable to me in parlaying my support analyst skills into a new position in my company. Without HDI’s leadership, knowledge and guidance, and especially the support of the Chicagoland Chapter, I would not have the confidence and invaluable skillset that I do today.
