Awards

Beginning in 1997, each of the NCSL staff professional associations were given the opportunity to recognize among their membership two legislative staff or agencies who made outstanding contributions to their legislatures and to the staff association.

The award was established through the Legislative Staff Coordinating Committee to recognize excellence in service to state legislatures. In addition to the staff professional association honorees, the staff chair(s) of the NCSL Standing Committees may select up to two additional award recipients.
