Member of the Month

Our Member of the Month series recognises our extraordinary members; those who are excelling in their careers and those who go above and beyond to benefit the community.

Each month the hyp Board selects one member from the list of nominees for the title of hyp Member of the Month. To be selected, a fellow member, work colleague, boss or friend, must recognise the hard work you put in by nominating you online here.

There are many benefits to being selected as hyp’s member of the month! This includes exposure across our communication channels, a nomination for Hunter Headlines Hunter Young Gun and access to complimentary leadership coaching thanks to Forsythes Recruitment & HR.

If you know of a member who deserves the recognition for their hard work, please tell us in 200 words or less why they deserve to be the hyp member of the month.

Some general rules:

  • Anyone can nominate, but successful nominees are selected by the hyp board.
  • Nominations must be for hyp members only.
  • The successful nominee will be contacted prior to hyp publishing them through our media platforms.
  • The successful nominee will also have an opportunity to be promoted as Hunter Headline’s Young Gun.
  • The successful nominee will also have the opportunity to receive complimentary leadership coaching by Forsythes Recruitment & HR.
