Do you know an AR/ABL who tirelessly informs, organizes, and advocates for their peers and the teaching profession? Nominate them now for the Annual UEA AR/ABL of the Year Award.

About the Award:

The AR/ABL of the Year Award looks to:

  1. Recognize, at the state level that AR/ABLs are the cornerstone of our Association. It is the AR/ABL who is the conduit between our general membership and local and state leadership. As with all awards, there are many who do amazing work who do not receive formal recognition. It is important to recognize an exemplary AR/ABL in the state.
  2. Guide the OMC Committee in developing information and resources for UniServs and Locals to support and train AR/ABLs.
  3. Honor the work of a local leader who is supporting their school and Association’s growth and strength.

The nominee must be a UEA member.

The nominee must be a currently serving AR/ABL.
