2023 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. EACE Awards are open to members only. You may check someone's EACE member status by searching the online membership directory. Current EACE Board Members and members of the Awards Sub-Committee are not eligible for award nomination.

Who will you nominate for a 2023 EACE Award? Nominations will open January 4 through February 3, 2023.
