The Professional Leadership Award

For Exemplary Professional Practice …

In 2010, NESEA launched the annual Professional Leadership Award, which is given to someone who demonstrates exemplary professional practice and exceptional humanity. Someone we can hold out to say, “Here is why NESEA exists!”

The recipient of this award is fully engaged with and embodies the ideals of the NESEA community:

  • is regarded in his or her field as a leader whose ideas change how we think about and do our work
  • is a whole systems thinker with a multidisciplinary approach to practice
  • models methods of practice that we aspire to
  • demonstrates the highest integrity and honesty
  • is immensely generous in sharing his or her knowledge, skill, and experience
  • is a person of great heart
  • is a clear thinker and communicator
  • has a profound curiosity that extends the boundaries of our shared knowledge.

The award is presented during NESEA Night at the BuildingEnergy Boston Conference + Trade Show.
