Call for Nominations

NALFO Legislative Staff Achievement Awards

The National Association of Legislative Fiscal Offices (NALFO) is inviting nominations for the NCSL annual Legislative Staff Achievement Awards. Each NCSL professional staff association may give up to two awards to recognize outstanding staff. These nominations can be for individuals, project teams or entire offices. The awards are presented at NCSL's Legislative Summit.


A letter of nomination, accompanied by appropriate supporting materials, should describe and document how the nominee has met one or more of the criteria noted below. A panel of NALFO officers will review the nominations based only upon the materials received, therefore the submission of examples and sufficient documentation to assess a nominee’s contributions is imperative.

  1. The nominee has made a significant contribution to the resolution of a fiscal or public policy issue before the state legislature.    
  2. The nominee, over time, has consistently demonstrated a high degree of professionalism and excellence in a body of work or career that warrants special recognition. 
  3. The nominee has made other unique contributions in promoting and developing the role of legislative fiscal staff assistance in the legislative process.


The deadline for submitting nominations is Friday, May 10. All materials should be emailed to or sent to:
