NBOA Professional Achievement Award

Nominations are currently closed. Sign up to be notified when the 2025 NBOA Awards open for nominations. If you have any questions, please email membership@nboa.org or call 202-407-7140.

This award recognizes the invaluable contributions made by independent school business, finance and operations staff who are not business officers.


This award will be given to a member of the business and operations staff who has made significant and lasting contributions to his or her school’s operations or financial health. The award recognizes professionals who generally fall under the supervision of the business officer. Eligible individuals include but are not limited to controllers, human resource professionals, facilities directors, IT directors and other members of the business office staff. Recipients’ accomplishments will exemplify high quality performance and exceptional work ethic, and demonstrate the highest standards of management, knowledge and business acumen. Recipients must be affiliated with an NBOA member school.


There is no limit on Professional Achievement Awards; as many are given as there are deserving nominees. The award committee will select award recipients during October. NBOA will notify the nominators in the fall, and the award will be presented at the school. Award recipients will be announced in Net Assets magazine and acknowledged at the following NBOA Annual Meeting.
