Massachusetts Municipal Human Resources is accepting nominations through May 19 for its annual Emil S. Skop Award, given in recognition of outstanding contributions made to the field of municipal human resources management.

Nominations will be accepted from MMHR members, human resources colleagues, municipal chief administrative officers, municipal personnel/human resources boards, officials of state human resources-related agencies, and other related entities.

The 2022 Skop Award will be presented at the MMHR Annual Business Meeting on June 16 in Burlington.

Skop was one of the founding members of the Massachusetts Municipal Personnel Association (renamed MMHR in 2019) and served as its first executive secretary.

Before “networking” became a recognizable term, Skop acknowledged the value of sharing information and experiences with other human resources and labor relations professionals. He is recognized for his tireless efforts in this area.
