About the Inspire Awards Program
Each year, DIA recognizes our outstanding volunteers, globally and regionally, for their leadership, level of excellence, and commitment to service. This year, DIA is launching a new Awards Program that will shine the spotlight on our global award winners all year long, at every DIA Annual Meeting around the globe.

Leadership. Level of Excellence. Commitment to Service.
