Excellence Awards
The ASBOA Awards program has been developed by members of ASBOA to recognize individual members for their contributions of time, talent and commitment to the Association.  The Executive has endorsed the restructuring of the annual Celebration of Excellence Awards to provide three (3) "Awards of Excellence" that connect to the Association's mandate of
  • Taking Care of Members
  • Taking Care of Business
  • Fostering Good Relationships
Individual members may be recognized for their leadership, commitment and contributions to the profession, to the membership of the Association and to the community. 
Life Member Nominations
Life Membership is an honour that may be bestowed on an individual member in recognition of distinguished service to the Association, upon retirement from the practice of school business administration.  Life memberships are not automatic upon the completion of a members career.
Each nomination must provide detailed information regarding the individuals activities and contributions to the Association and the profession, and be supported by 2 or more ASBOA members.
In addition the individual must meet the criteria as outlined in the Association Bylaws and School Business Officials Regulations (37/2004)
  • the individual must have been actively involved in the practice of school business administration for at least 10 years
  • the individual has rendered distinguished service to the Association
  • the individual is retired or has resigned from the practice of school business administration
An individual is eligible for nomination in the current year if their retirement/resignation date falls within the current membership year.
Award recipients will be notified prior to the conference and invited to attend the annual banquet for presentation and recognition.
