Do you know of legislative staffers, or a legislative agency, who go above and beyond in their service to their peers, lawmakers and the legislative institution?
Nominations are now being accepted for the Legislative Staff Achievement Awards.
“Legislative Staff Achievement Awards are the highest national honor given to legislative staff. Especially in this highly unusual time, when we are all witness to legislative staff rising to the challenges of a new world by applying their professional expertise and/or leadership," said NCSL Staff Chair Martha Wigton.
"The formal acknowledgment of their impact on public service should be shared and celebrated! I encourage you to take a moment to nominate that very special peer from your office or professional staff association for recognition.”
NCSL’s nine professional staff associations provide the opportunity to recognize exemplary legislative staff and agencies. Learn more about each association’s award process, including selection criteria and submission deadlines.
Recipients of 2020 Legislative Staff Achievement Awards will be recognized this summer by each association and announced on NCSL’s website, in a blog and in NCSL’s State Legislatures magazine. Legislative staff are a pillar of the legislative institution and often work behind the scenes to ensure its success. Now’s your chance to recognize their work and dedication.
