DRI Call for Nominees: Annual Professional Achievement and Service Awards

Do you have a colleague who deserves recognition for his or her professional contributions? DRI's Annual Professional Achievement and Service Awards celebrate and honor outstanding performance by state and local defense organizations, DRI law firms, and individual members, and we are looking for nominees.

These awards aim to recognize individuals for their achievements on behalf of the defense bar and the civil justice system or their involvement in community and public service activities that have a positive effect on society at large. Recognition enhances members' personal growth and accomplishments, provides us all with role models and strengthens members' images in the legal and business communities and with the general public.

Please download a copy of our awards brochure and read how you can nominate a deserving individual, your organization and its members. We encourage you to submit an entry for each award by July 1, 2019.  Winners will be announced at the Celebration of Leadership on Friday, October 18, held in conjunction with DRI’s Annual Meeting in New Orleans, LA from October 16–19, 2019.  In addition, DRI will recognize award recipients in For The Defense and through press releases to national and local media.
