Speaking of professional associations, I recently received this announcement through NFPA’s Facebook site:
Time is running out! Applications and nominations for NFPA®’s annual awards and scholarships must be RECEIVED at NFPA headquarters by July 31st. You still have time to nominate someone for these awards/scholarships but you must do it quickly! Please refer to the information on the NFPA website (www.paralegals.org) for specifics on who can nominate a candidate for an award/scholarship, the criteria and qualifications for candidates, and nomination applications and procedures.
Awards and scholarships are presented each year at NFPA’s annual convention, scheduled to be held this year in Portland, Oregon from October 29th through November 1st, and include The Hon. William R. Robie Leadership Award, National Paralegal of the Year Award, Outstanding Local Leader Award, PACE Ambassador Award, Association Pro Bono Award, Individual Pro Bono Award, two Thomson-Reuters Scholarships and a PACE Scholarship Award.
