GACE Presidential Update - Awards

It's awards season and GACE needs your help to recognize outstanding GACE members! The Awards committee is now accepting nominations for all of our annual awards, including our research scholarship and NACE Management Leadership Institute scholarship. Do you know a new GACE member who's made significant contributions to GACE this past year? Consider nominating them for the Rising Star Award! GACE is also accepting nominations for the Jack Mangham Award, which recognizes outstanding experiential learning students from GACE member schools and organizations. Two students will be selected (one school-nominated and one employer-nominated) and each will receive a monetary award of $500!

Additional information about all of the awards, including nomination forms and applications, can be found on the GACE website: http://gace.org/GACE/Awards.

The Awards Committee is also recruiting committee members to help with the review and selection of GACE award recipients. If you're interested in serving on this committee, please email Amanda Long (along54@kennesaw.edu).
