Circle of Excellence is a recognition program established by the NODA Excellence Fund in 2018. The program has been modified since its development to recognize individuals who have served as professionals & scholars in the fields of Orientation, Transition, and Retention and have dedicated years of service to the Association.
Circle of Excellence nominees should possess the following qualities:
Each year, Association members will have the opportunity to nominate a colleague to serve as our Circle of Excellence nominee. Nominees will be selected by the NODA Fundraising Committee. The Circle of Excellence nominees will be announced at the NODA Annual Conference & will serve as ambassadors for the Circle of Excellence fundraising efforts for the Association for one year. Individuals will set their own fundraising amount with an attainable goal to strive to raise as much money as possible. The amount raised and individual will be recognized at the Annual Conference to close out their term.
*Decisions will be based upon contributions to NODA, years of active service, and contributions to the fields of OTR.
