We are one week closer to Spring and to the deadline of March 20th.  You know the old adage, “share, share, it’s only fair…”   So share your plans and projects, and let us know about the great people you work with.  And don’t feel shy about tooting your own horn.  You deserve it!

As the last several years, the Vermont nominations will be judged by a group of peers outside the state, the NHPA Executive Committee.  So you will not only be sharing with us, but also with New Hampshire and potentially with NNECAPA.  All VPA winners will be submitted to NNECAPA for their award recognition.

Here is the link to the criteria and forms.  It is easy, peasy.  You just need to answer the questions.  However, if you would like some help with filling out your form, please feel free to contact me at pmcmurtry@madriver.com and either I or someone else from the  awards committee can give you a hand. So put your thinking caps on!
