Did you know that each year NASCOE recognizes our members who, well, to put it bluntly are amazing? The awards are called distinguished service awards and there are three different categories in which us as members can nominate these amazing people.
The NASCOE Distinguished Service Awards program encourages members to recognize NASCOE members who make outstanding contributions in the Areas of:
- Service to NASCOE
- Service to FSA-Agriculture; or
- Service to Community.
I would like to challenge our membership to submit at least five individuals in Minnesota for the DSA awards. We have MANY amazing employees in the state and it is time that we nominate them and recognize them for a job well done. Help them to know their contribution to our great state and agriculture is not only noticed but greatly appreciated. NASCOE has once again made this process as easy as possible so please nominate these deserving people.
Any member of the Association may make a nomination for this competitive awards program. A State approving official of the State Association is REQUIRED to certify to the eligibility of the person being nominated. Members of the NASCOE association in good standing, members serving under a permanent appointment, and members voluntarily retired during the current year are eligible to receive these awards.
All nominations shall be electronically submitted NO LATER THAN JANUARY 1.
The nomination form should furnish the following information:
- Name, address, email address, and telephone numbers of the nominee and nominator.
- Certification by an officer of the State Association that the nominee is serving under a permanent appointment and is in good standing.
- Award being recommended.
- Nomination information should be brief, factual and specific.
