Dear AAIDD Member,

Halloween is coming soon. Hopefully your kids or grandchildren are all prepared for costumes and who or what they will be. And, time to buy or make whatever you are giving away for treats.

You may hear the clergy voice in me by making the analogy that this is also the time to celebrate colleagues and organizations for who they are and who or what they have been and contributed to the field and the people we support. I’ll try to resist carrying the analogy too far, but as you may know, a national award can indeed be a real treat to the people or organizations who receive them, as well as to the people who take the time to send in the nominations.

So if you feel so inclined, conspire with some others as you wish to send in a nomination or two. And, feel free to spread this invitation to non AAIDD members or networks.

The deadline for the 2012 AAIDD Award nominations has been extended until Friday, November 11. 

Thank you!
