Legislative Staff Award Winners 

The recipients of the 2022 Legislative Staff Achievement Awards have been selected. Beginning in 1997, NCSL’s nine staff professional associations were given the opportunity to recognize among their membership up to two legislative staff or agencies who made outstanding contributions to their legislatures and to the staff association. In addition to the professional staff association honorees, the staff co-chair(s) of the NCSL Standing Committees may select up to two additional award recipients and the Legislative Education Staff Network also presents an annual staff award.
