The Lifetime Membership Award is the highest award that NASFAA can bestow on one of its members or an individual who is affiliated with a member organization. In order to be eligible to receive this award, the individual must first be employed or have been employed by a member institution, be an affiliate member, be employed by a constituent or associated member organization, or be a student member.
In as much as this award is the highest that NASFAA can bestow on a member, the achievements and contributions of the individual must truly be outstanding and significant. Normally, the individual will have made these contributions and achievements over a sustained period of time. That is to say, this award is not typically made for a one-time achievement or effort, but for working over a sustained period of time for the Association and the profession in important capacities, and contributing significantly to NASFAA's success in meeting its goals.
The 2016 award cycle is open through February 5, 2016 and winners will be announced at the 2016 NASFAA National Conference in Washington, DC. NASFAA members can submit their Lifetime Membership Award Nomination through this form.
There were no recipients of this award in 2015; however, the past winners list is available in PDF format.
