Call for Nominations: NORDP’s Rising Star of Excellence Awards – due March 1

The NORDP Board of Directors is excited to announce a new way to recognize the contributions of newer members of NORDP who have made outstanding contributions to the organization: the Rising Star of Excellence Award.  We are now accepting nominations for this award.

Active NORDP members with at least three years of experience in the profession; two years of NORDP membership; and significant volunteer contributions to NORDP, i.e., committee work, conference volunteer, presenter, etc. Current and past members of the NORDP Board of Directors are ineligible for nomination.

Nomination and Selection Process
Any NORDP member may nominate eligible members for this award. We are asking for a letter of nomination that details why this NORDP member is a good candidate for this recognition. In particular, the nomination should speak to past and current contributions to NORDP; the potential for future contributions to research development, to NORDP, or to both; and examples of excellence in research development that deserve to be recognized. The nomination should also include a short (approximately 50 words) statement to be used as an award citation if the nominee is selected.

Please submit nominations to by March 1, 2016. Nominations will be judged based upon the extent to which the candidate has achieved success in the criteria specified above.

The Conference Scholarship, Award, and Recognition subcommittee reviews the nomination materials and recommends nominees for approval by the Board of Directors. Awardees will receive an engraved plaque and waived conference registration for a future NORDP conference.
