Supervisors are encouraged to approve release time so that employees can attend the celebration on June 22, 2017, provided that the absence would not infringe upon the performance of required job duties. Because space is limited, an RSVP is required to attend the event.

We look forward to celebrating the extraordinary achievements of this year’s recipients of the 2017 AMG Awards.
