Volunteer of the Year Award

Each year, the National District Attorneys Association (NDAA) will recognize a member whose volunteer contributions have distinguished themselves among their peers in terms of service directly to NDAA and to advancing the work of the association. The NDAA Volunteer Award will be awarded to an active NDAA member each year. Due to the unique nature of this award, nominations are made by NDAA Board of Directors and NDAA staff members and accepted year-round, but nominations for 2025 must be submitted by 11:59 pm, Friday, January 10, 2025. NDAA membership is required for award consideration.
