The HDI Orange County Chapter invites you to be a part of our annual Analyst and Desktop Technician of the Year gala event!

Deadline to purchase your ticket is November 11th, so Act Now! 

Each year, HDI sponsors an event to recognize the brightest stars in technical support. HDI encourages employers to nominate their star performers as an acknowledgement of their valuable contributions and the chance of being recognized as the best of the best in Orange County.

Each nominee will be screened by a panel of judges. Once that interview process is complete, judges will select one Analyst and One Desktop Technician as the winners. Those two that are selected go on to compete at the Region level and (potentially) the National level at the HDI Annual Conference.

We often discuss the benefits of recognition; Now that you nominated your Rockstar, it's time to recognize them at the HDI Orange County Analyst & Desktop Technician of the year Awards Banquet. 

We had nominations from the following companies last year:

  • Solugenix
  • Superior Court of California, Orange County
  • First American
  • Allied Digital
  • Orange County Sanitation District
  • University of Southern California
  • American Honda Motor Company
  • Latham & Watkins, LLP

Come Join us at Maggiano's in Costa Mesa, where we'll have great food, great entertainment, and a great time celebrating our Analyst and Desktop Technicians.
