NESEA Awards

Join us in Congratulating the 2020 NESEA Awards Recipients

After a call for nominations from our community, two committees of NESEA Members have voted to recognize the contributions of one emerging leader and one distinguished servant. NESEA’s awards represent the richness of talent in our community, honor our history, and celebrate our future. The awards will be presented at NESEA Night 2020.
