INARF is pleased to offer our members the opportunity to recognize their outstanding Direct Support Professionals (DSPs), executive leadership, community partners and persons with disabilities through the INARF Annual Awards and the Costa N. Miller Scholarship presented at the INARF Annual Conference. In the weeks leading up to the Annual Conference, we'll feature details about each award and some notable award recipients.
The Partnership Award recognizes an individual, business, club, educational institution or corporation that has made significant contributions to improving the lives of persons with disabilities and the agencies serving them.
In 2013, INARF was proud to present the Partnership Award to Juli Paini, Americans with Disabilities Act Coordinator for the City of Indianapolis. Juli was nominated by Bosma Enterprises for her outstanding work to emphasize continued education and awareness around ADA issues. Her leadership in the City Business Leadership Network and The Mayor's Advisory Council resulted in greater inclusion and access for persons with disabilities.
The 2014 Annual Awards & Costa N. Miller Scholarship nominations will close at the end of business today. Nominees will be notified of the results of their applications by February 20. Please plan to join your colleagues to recognize our industry's best and brightest during the INARF Annual Awards Luncheon on March 13 at the Annual Conference.
