NRA Award Committee Call for Nominations

The National Rehabilitation Association (NRA) awards recognize and honor people and organizations that have created opportunities for people with disabilities or created advancements in the rehabilitation profession. NRA members, chapters, regions, and divisions are encouraged to make nominations. 

The NRA Awards Committee is currently seeking nominations for the 2023 Awards. They will be announced at the Virtual Conference to be held in September 2023.
Each year we have the opportunity to honor and recognize those who go above and beyond on a regular basis. We all know these individuals and it is a pleasure to be around them. So, let’s make sure we recognize them and share their stories with the other professionals in our field. The ceremony will be virtual as part of the conference. In the past three years, this has allowed not just the recipients to attend, but family members and friends as well.

Our Awards Committee looks forward to your nominations.  Below you will see descriptions of each award and the criteria. Please note that all nominations require a letter of nomination from the nominator and  two letters of support. 

Thursday June 15, 2023:   Award nominations open and Award descriptions and criteria will be available on the website.

Friday, August 18th3 : Nominations are closed.
