2014 AHCA/NCAL Awards Program

Through the Volunteer of the Year, ID/DD Hero of the Year, and NFP Program of the Year awards programs, the American Health Care Association and the National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL) honor those individuals who are dedicated to improving the quality of lives of residents and their surrounding communities. 


The nomination packets for AHCA/NCAL’s 2014 Awards Program follow:  Volunteers of the Year​; ID/DD Hero of the Year; and, Not for Profit Program of the Year. The deadline for AHCA receipt of all nominations is Thursday, May 15, 2014.

Just as a reminder, whereas the Volunteers of the Year nomination form MUST be submitted by a state affiliate organization, the ID/DD Hero of the Year and the NFP Program of the Year nomination forms can be member-submitted directly to AHCA. 

All nominations must be typed and submitted electronically or by hard copy and mailed. Faxed nominations are not accepted. Honorees in each category will be recognized at AHCA/NCAL’s 65th Annual Convention and Expo, October 5 to 8, 2014, in Washington, D.C.
