The Board of Certification/Accreditation (BOC) is seeking nominations for the Jim Newberry Award for Extraordinary Service. The award recognizes outstanding individuals who demonstrate extraordinary service to BOC. The deadline to submit nominations is September 6. Select nominees will be invited to complete and submit an award application.
BOC created the award in honor and remembrance of longtime practitioner, BOC board member and leader Jim Newberry Jr., who passed away in 2016.
“We look forward to receiving nominations for professionals like Jim, whose commitment to BOC is showcased through their advocacy and service to the organization,” said Wayne R. Rosen BOC board chair.
Nominees must have a proven history of service to and volunteerism with BOC and should exemplify the model lived out by Newberry during his more than four decades in O&P.
