Nomination Process

All professional planners know a colleague that has been going above and beyond the call of duty. And we know that you work with exceptional volunteers. Please don't feel shy about nominating your own plan - whether it is a town plan, regional plan, a visioning plan, a modal plan, etc. Once all nominations are received, the VPA Awards Committee sends the nominations to the New Hampshire Planners Association for review. NHPA provides their recommendations to the VPA Executive Committee for adoption. VPA awardees are submitted to NNECAPA's Award Program for consideration at the fall conference.

Completed forms and questions about the awards process may be addressed to Awards Committee Chair, Scott Grimm-Lyon, at sgrimmlyon@bcrcvt.org .
