To nominate an OPSEU member or team of members please provide your answer to the following questions:
- How does the member/team demonstrate the criteria listed in the above description?

- Where do you believe the biggest impact of their contribution can be seen?
Nominees must be OPSEU members in good standing or retired members.
Please provide your answer to the above questions in 300 words or less by 6 p.m. on March 20, 2017 and ensure that you complete the form on this web-page.
