Nominate a worthy UIRA member for the annual University Volunteer Award or Community Volunteer Award.  Any UIRA member may nominate a UIRA member, including him/herself.  What makes a good nominee?  Many hours of service and creative contributions to others and to a greater cause.  Past winners are good examples to compare: University Service Award winners were Nancy Lynch, Nancy Williams, and Ken Starck.  Community Service winners were Al Hood, Euguene Spaziani, and Ed Kottick.

To nominate a retiree, submit the person’s name and address (email and/or snail mail) and phone number, if available.  Please include a sentence or paragraph stating the reason you support this potential award recipient receiving the volunteer award, as well as the category (community volunteer or university volunteer) for the nominee.  A member of the selection committee will contact the nominee to obtain additional information about her/his relevant volunteer activities.  Submit nominations to Sue Otto by January 31, 2019 at or send mail to Sue Otto, 106 Notting Hill Lane, Iowa City, IA 52245.
