Greater Houston Chapter Launches Awards Program

For the first time, ASPA's Houston Chapter will recognize and award public officials for their outstanding performance and/or achievements in the Greater Houston area. The Houston Chapter will make two awards in the first week of May 2017, celebrated as the Public Service Recognition Week.

We are now calling for nominations of public officials for the awards. The maximum number of nominations per public organization is two, that is, one for each category. The deadline for the submission of nominations is February 28, 2017. The applications should be e-mailed to majumdars@tsu.edu. The award notification will be mailed out in early April, along with information on the date and venue of the award ceremony.

If you need further information, please contact majumdars@tsu.edu.

We look forward to your participation and support in recognizing those men and women in federal, state and local government offices in our area who have shown both commitment and excellence in serving and making a difference in the public service.
