2022 EACE Awards

Each year, EACE Awards honor and recognize those among us who have made a significant contribution to the Association or our industry as a whole.

  • Is there a program that you or a fellow member implemented that was innovative, redefined an existing practice or engaged students in a way that is either unique or substantial?
  • How about a new professional who has consistently impressed you with their efforts, energy and/or commitment?

Members are encouraged to either self-nominate or nominate a colleague that deserves recognition. You may check someone's EACE member status by searching the online membership directoryWho will you nominate for a 2022 EACE Award?
