2014 Direct Support Professional of the Year Nomination Deadline Extended to January 16
You asked, we listened, and because of requests for an extension, in part due to frigid temperatures across much of the country, the deadline for the DSP of the Year Nomination has been extended to Thursday, January 16 at 5pm EST. Organizations may submit three nominations per state - see the details on the ANCOR website.
Every year we recognize the best DSPs from around the country - one in each state and one national recipient. The national recipient will be ANCOR's guest at the ANCOR conference next spring. The online nomination form can be found here. Every organization, whether an ANCOR member of not, may submit three nominations: see the details on the Nomination Form. We want to help you create the best nomination possible, to give your DSPs a chance to compete. To this end, we have provided detailed guidance on each section of the nomination form. Please read the "Guidance for Nominations" before submitting. The link is at the bottom of the page on the NAC website. We also provided advice from staff and providers who have successfully nominated a DSP in our November 6 webinar. A recording of the webinar, along with other resources, can be found here.
We look forward to receiving your nominations!
