Member of the Month

We have teamed up with Hunter Headline for our Member of the Month series, which recognises our extraordinary members; those excelling in their careers and those who go above and beyond to benefit the community.

Each month the hyp 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 and they must nominate you online here.

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 the Hunter Headline’s Young Gun.
