The VBA attracts some of the best, brightest and most fervent contributors to the betterment of the bar in Virginia. Several have been so exceptional that we have named awards in their honor.

Whom would you suggest is deserving of a VBA honor? Which award is most fitting? What has your candidate accomplished?

Recommending honorees is another way you can get involved in the VBA. The Board of Governors wants to hear from the general membership before determining which of the existing VBA honors will be bestowed at the 2019 Annual Meeting, and to whom.

Please suggest honorees, the award they should be considered for and provide your rationale or supporting information no later than Oct. 22. Submit your responses to VBA Executive Director Yvonne Cockram by email.
