AUCD Network Awards-Nominations now open

June 26, 2012 by cpehrson

Do you know a person, group, or program that deserves recognition? The Association of University Centers on Disabilities Awards offer one way to publicly provide national acknowledgement of their contributions.

The AUCD Awards Ceremony has become one of the highlights of the annual meeting and  provides an opportunity to recognize those in the network who have made exceptional contributions to the lives of people with disabilities and their families.

These members – advocates, trainees, professionals – inform the public, provide services, conduct research, teach the next generation, develop policy, and support others – all toward our goals of independence, productivity, inclusion, and self-determination. The effect of these daily activities is seen in a thousand small ways and often result in dramatic improvements in the lives of individuals.

The process for nomination only takes a few minutes: review the AUCD Award categories, then nominate an outstanding individual, group, or program for one of the awards. Please submit your nominations using the electronic submission form by Friday, September 7, 2012. Those selected will be announced in approximately mid-October.

The awards will be presented at the 2012 AUCD Conference Awards Ceremony and Gala.
