The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles held its first ever Advisory Council/Committee Excellence Award ceremonies in locations throughout the state in May and June 2012. DHSMV and its Division of the Florida Highway Patrol, in collaboration with the FHP Advisory Council and the DHSMV Advisory Board, created the ACE Awards to recognize and reward employees who provide service that reflects the Department’s values. Each winner received a check for $250 and a certificate of appreciation.
The Department would like to thank the DHSMV Advisory Board and FHP Advisory Council for their continued benevolence and strong support of our members and Department.
Congratulations to all the winners.
