Distributor Award Program

What is the MVP Award?

The MVP Award is an annual recognition program exclusively for MHEDA Distributor Member Companies.

Good business partners are the key to success. MHEDA's MVP Award provides you with a tangible method of demonstrating your company's commitment to business excellence to your important stakeholders.
