Our awards focus on the following categories. Use these links to download nomination forms.


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.
