Congrats to ALL the INFORMS Student Chapter Award Winners!

One of my favorite activities is working as the Faculty Advisor to the UMass Amherst INFORMS Student Chapter.

Today we heard the good news from Mr. David Hunt who is the VP of Chapters/Fora of INFORMS, which also went out to Faculty Advisors.

The message read:

Dear Student Chapter Officers,

Congratulations! The Chapters/Fora Committee is delighted to notify you that your chapter is a winner of the INFORMS Student Chapter Annual Award at the level shown below. The purpose of these awards is to recognize the outstanding achievements of student chapters. The awards will be presented at the Student Awards Ceremony at the upcoming INFORMS Annual Meeting in San Francisco, CA. If you are at the meeting, we hope you will join us and be recognized at this event. It will be held on Monday, November 10th at 7:30 p.m. in the Hilton San Francisco Union Square in the Plaza Ballroom on the Lobby Level. If you are unable to attend the conference, we will mail the award to your respective Faculty Advisor.

Thank you for all your hard work and for your commitment to INFORMS student chapters!

Best regards,

David Hunt
