2011 National Emerald Society Officer of the Year Nominations

Dear Society Member:

As a member Emerald Society of the National Conference of Emerald Society's, our President Steve Saletros can endorse nomination(s) for the award of the National Emerald Socities Officer of the Year designation. Nominations are due before March 15, 2011 for the calendar year 2010.

Certainly, if we do not nominate one or more officers, we can't win the nomination.

Since, this honor will be awarded during National Police Week, when Police Departments from across the nation honor those members, who have made the ultimate sacrifice; NCLEES intends to make this award a joyous event and asks that Member Organizations nominate Officers, who are survivors after having accomplished acts of valor or outstanding community service.

Please send any nomination you feel worthy to Steve at along with a justification for the nomination.

The nomination form can be found by following the below link.
