I have some exciting news to share! This year we’ll be giving two awards at NESEA Night to recognize and celebrate the contributions of two people in our community - a longstanding award for a longstanding contributor, and a new award for a relative newcomer that shows great promise.
First, as we’ve been doing for the past 25 years, we will be honoring a NESEA Member with the Distinguished Service Award. This award recognizes a NESEA Member who has made a significant contribution of time and service to the organization.

Second, and new this year, we will recognize a rising star within our community through the first-ever Kate Goldstein Emerging Leader Award. This award will recognize a newer member of our community - somebody who best exemplifies the life and legacy of Kate Goldstein, a former NESEA Board Member and Lifetime Member whose life was cut short by a tragic accident in India in 2014.
We believe it is important for NESEA’s awards to represent the diversity and richness of our community, to honor our history, and celebrate our future. With these two awards, we recognize both the longtime pioneers who have shaped the organization and the next generation of high-performance building leaders who will keep NESEA strong and relevant in the future.
You can learn more about these awards and submit nominations by clicking here. Nominations are due by January 25. Thank you!
