Legislative Staff Achievement Award - RACSS
Nominations are now being accepted for the 2012 Legislative Staff Achievement Award, from RACSS. The Award recognizes legislative staff who or legislative staff agencies that have demonstrated excellence in their legislative careers and also contributed to the activities of the Research and Committee Staff Section.
The Legislative Staff Achievement Award was instituted in 1997 by the Legislative Staff Coordinating Committee, as a means for the ten NCSL staff sections to annually recognize legislative staff or offices that have demonstrated excellence in supporting the work of a state legislature and strengthening the legislative institution, and in contributing to the work of NCSL. The awards have added meaning in that they are bestowed by the recipients’ peers through each of the ten staff sections and the NCSL Staff Chair.
The 2012 Awards Committee members are all past recipients of the Legislative Staff Achievement Award. Karl Aro of Maryland, Bryant Howe of Utah, and Pepper Sturm of Nevada will serve on this year's Awards Committee.
The awards will be presented during the NCSL Legislative Summit, August 6-9, 2012, in Chicago, Illinois.
