Nomination Process & Questions
All members of NASW-NJ can nominate either themselves (there is nothing wrong with self-promotion!) or a colleague. All nominees for social work positions should be members of NASW-NJ, however we do have some awards open to those in our field/surrounding fields that do not require membership. All nominations are due by August 1, 2020 and will be reviewed by an awards committee. Notifications will be made in August.
Can I nominate myself? Yes! Absolutely. We encourage self-nominations as well. We believe in recognizing your contributions and being a champion for yourself just as you are for your colleagues and clients.
Can I submit more than one nomination? Yes. Just make sure your submissions are
unique to the individual and the narratives are different.
What if I'm not sure the person I want to nominate is a member? That's ok, nominate them anyway. We have our ways of figuring
out if someone is a member!
I see new award categories this year. Why? We are always seeking to grow, improve and highlight amazing work. We've taken a look at the phenomenal contributions made this year expanded our awards.
