Scholarship Program – State Conference – Membership has an opportunity to send two people to the State Conference with a stipend of a maximum of $1,500.00 for expenses. This program was adopted by the membership in April of 2016. The conference is in October and candidates for this program should be submitted by Aug 26 to the Executive Board. Only one candidate per Alabama agency will be considered and only two candidates will be selected. Candidates should be in good standing with the Association and their Agency, but whose Agency does not have the means to normally send them to attend the annual State conference. The Agency must be willing to release the applicant(s) chosen to attend and cover any peripheral costs above the normal stipend of $1,500.00 per applicant. Additional details are in the program and the attached application that is required for consideration. We are placing the program and applications online at this time to ensure that we are able to select candidates for this upcoming State Conference in Orange Beach, Alabama. Questions regarding the program or candidacy can be forwarded to

To: Membership
​Subj: 3rd Annual Awards

Wow!  Yes, its that time of the year again. Get your program started NOW! Who are your outstanding performer(s)? We know you have them. Someone who, through their almost singular actions, brought a life-saving incident to a timely and safe resolution. Or, someone who has performed at peak efficiency, accurately processing large volumes of calls and dispatches throughout the year. Or, creating that database that everyone in the Center depends upon! Whether recommended by their peers or supervisors, it’s time to provide them with the recognition they richly deserve.

And this year’s program has been expanded. We have expanded the awards to include a full State Annual Conference registration; including room, vendor hall and education session! Additional meals and travel are on your own or at your Agency’s cost. Additionally, the awards will be presented at the opening session so you will have plenty of time to acknowledge and congratulate the winners.

Guess what? It’s time to start putting those nomination packages together so they can be submitted to the Awards Committee by August 26th 2016 . Get the process rolling in your agency now. Don’t delay! Take this opportunity to recognize and award your outstanding performers. Not everyone can be selected, but just to be nominated is a privilege because it shows that YOU recognize their outstanding performance!
