2020 Distinguished Service Awards, Sick Leave Awards and Scholarship Deadline

The NASCOE Distinguished Service Awards are designed to recognize fellow NASCOE members contributions to the Farm Service Agency/Agriculture, NASCOE and Community. The recognition of a nomination is a great way to boost morale in our very busy and often stressful work environment. We all get in the groove of doing our jobs and forget the impact that we make on others. The nomination process is as simple as going to https://nascoe.org/dsa-nomination/, and filling out the online application. The deadline is January 15, 2020.

NASCOE members take a great pride in providing assistance to American Farmers and Ranchers. Often, that means employees going to work when they do not feel well. In turn, employees often accumulate large amounts of sick leave. NASCOE has a process that will allow employees to self-certify sick leave in return for being recognized with a Sick Leave Award. Sick Leave Award increments are 1,000 hours, 1,500 hours, 2,000 hours, 2,500 hours, 3,000 hours and 3,500 hours. You may self-certify at https://nascoe.org/sick-leave-awards/ by January 15, 2020.
