Hi all,
Here's a message from APRA International about awards and scholarships for the big conference in Las Vegas this summer. It would be great to see our Northwest colleagues recognized with an award, so I encourage you to consider nominating someone. Word on the street is that they've streamlined the nomination process significantly, and they don't usually get a landslide of nominations.

Help APRA recognize the best in the field!

Nominate yourself or a peer today for a 2014 Award.

Have you or one of your colleagues made significant contributions to the field of prospect development, their organization or the APRA community? If so, be sure to nominate yourself or your colleague for a 2014 APRA award.

Nominations must be submitted for consideration by March 31, 2014.

The 2014 APRA Awards include:

* APRA Distinguished Service Award
* APRA Professional of the Year Award
* APRA Foundation Margret Fuhry Grant
* APRA Scholarship

Each applicant must be an APRA member in good standing at the time of nomination. A committee of APRA members will select award winners. Awards will be presented at Prospect Development 2014, APRA's 27th Annual International Conference, July 30-August 2, 2014 at the Cosmopolitan Las Vegas. Additional details and applications for each are available below and on our website<http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?f=001Nc4HrYBSRuLk0g18FJl8ZNhkC4MEsGJuHZPoy_rZIYSdzdWU5_ediDFZCrE6aE4Xs3XhF_HnYoHPwYddF323HfhAPRE5y53DpvKO3NvksfTGVdiULH5k036UylXyfBy6kZqw8A0TSwPV8tCktHyQ559lP1K-PkHm3Qu7cgo40hdVzf4fTtA4-EypJIEdM5G9up3WiEziOeU=&c=&ch=>.

APRA Distinguished Service Award
The Distinguished Service Award honors an individual who has enhanced both the advancement research profession and APRA through exceptional contributions beyond his/her daily paid work. Both professional competencies and personal competencies (contributions that facilitate learning and exceptional talents) are both taken into consideration for award selection.

The award recipient receives a full complimentary registration and accommodation at the Annual International Conference.
