Nominations now being accepted for the 2019 Trombold
Achievement and Kansas HR Professional of the Year Award!
The Trombold Achievement and Kansas HR Professional of the Year Award was established in
1992 to recognize our state's Human Resources Professionals who excel within their field and
as volunteer leaders with SHRM and their community.
The Trombold Achievement Award originated to honor George Trombold of Wichita, Kansas.
George was a valued executive of Boeing for 37 years. As Vice-President of Human Resources,
George exemplified the highest level of professionalism and was greatly respected by both
management and labor. George was also a strong volunteer leader for his professional
organization. He was one of the founders of the American Society for Personnel Administrators
George was dedicated to fostering his profession through actively participating in his local
chapter in Wichita as well as the Chairperson for ASPA. In addition, George had a deep sense
of civic responsibility and commitment. He understood to make a community strong, its citizens
needed to be a dedicated part of it. He served on numerous committee boards throughout his
life. He did all of these things, not for self-advancement, but because he knew it was the right
thing to do. Sadly, George passed away in 2007, but the legacy he left behind is legendary.
Nominees are expected to meet the following requirements:
- An active Human Resources professional
- Have a minimum of five years of HR experience
