NABE Award Nominations are Open!
Don’t forget to nominate a colleague or your bar association for one of NABE’s highest honors: The Bolton Award and the Peer Excellence Award for individuals and the LexisNexis Community & Educational Outreach Awards for organizations. April 14, 2017 is the deadline for submission of nominations for review by the board. The Peer Excellence Award and LexisNexis Awards will be presented at the NABE Annual Meeting in New York on August 10, with the Bolton Award presented at the NCBP/NABE/NCBF joint meeting on August 11. The Bolton Award is given each year to an individual who epitomizes professional excellence as an executive of a bar association and as a member of NABE. The Peer Excellence Award will be presented to a NABE member who has demonstrated his/her support for the organization through significant service to NABE and its membership. It is not necessary to be an executive director or other chief staff executive to receive either of these awards and unsuccessful prior nominations for the Bolton Award submitted within the last two years will be reconsidered. For organizations, the NABE/LexisNexis Community and Educational Outreach Awards shine a light on innovation and effectiveness in public service and law-related education programs conducted to advance the general public. New this year, the award categories have provided for the nomination of national, specialty and Canadian associations in addition to the standard state and local bar provisions.  To view the criteria for each award as well as nomination requirements, visit the NABE awards page and click on the name of the award in which you are interested.
