Volunteer of the Year Award
The dedication and expertise of NCA member volunteers makes our work possible - especially given the association’s small staff.
All of our volunteers give back to our industry in many important ways. Each year, the NCA recognizes one outstanding volunteer who stands out for his/her overall leadership and contributions during the past year.
The award is presented onstage at the NCA Annual Convention.
Award Eligibility and Nomination
The NCA encourages all members to submit nominations for the Volunteer of the Year. Nominees are reviewed by the Board-level External and Member Relations Committee and selected by majority vote.
To nominate a candidate for the NCA Volunteer of the Year Award, please submit this form, in addition to a letter support describing how the candidate has gone above and beyond to serve as a positive example to others, while advancing the mission of the NCA. (NCA Member Access Only)
All applications must be received by September 15. Please review the criteria for NCA Volunteer of the Year Award eligibility.
