The Waya Award

Each year, APC’s Waya Award honors a professional’s contributions and quality service to our client with special acknowledgement for their dedication and exemplary work.

Cherokee for “Wolf,” the Waya is a sacred animal to Native Americans and symbolizes family, teamwork, intelligence, dignity, respect, pride in work, loyalty, and success of a mission.


APC’s Waya Award recognizes an employee’s extraordinary professional contributions and quality service to our client, as well as their integral role in advancing our client’s mission and fulfilling APC’s vision of positively impacting people’s lives.


All APC full-time employees are eligible. Due to IRS guidelines, we are unable to offer this award to non-employees subcontracting on our engagements.


Nominees must have consistently performed in an exemplary manner, exceeding the expectations of their position, and should demonstrate commitment to the mission of the company and reflect APC’s values:

  • Do what's right. Always.
  • Make it happen.
  • Be of service.


All Client Managers are invited to participate in making nominations.

The Waya Award nomination form includes questions regarding the specific and current examples of the professional’s achievements and contributions that reflect the principle criteria and attributes mentioned above.


All nominations will be kept confidential before, the selection process. Selection as a finalist relies on a multi-point system based on value, criteria and attributes. Please forward inquiries and concerns to mgmt@apcinc.com.

  • The Waya Award Administrator will coordinate nominations submitted with the Waya Award Committee for review and selection
