Due to the increase in COVID cases over the holiday season, CBAALAS had to make the difficult decision to delay our annual awards reception which would have normally taken place in January.  We are hoping to host an in-person awards reception this spring!  Watch your email for upcoming event announcements.  In the meantime, we would like to honor our shining stars for their dedication in 2021!  So get your award nominations in soon!


Award nominations are due May 2, 2022.  Visit our website at or open the attached nomination forms for more information on each award, such as eligibility criteria, if self nominations are accepted, and what the winner(s) will receive.  The following awards are available this year.
