Call for Nominees

2018 MACC Environmental Service Awards

We are accepting nominations for our prestigious MACC Environmental Service Awards for individuals and groups that have made outstanding contributions to protect natural resources in Massachusetts.

Conservation commissioners and staff, activists, environmentalists, consultants, politicians, government officials, foundations, teachers, students, and others who have made measurable contributions are likely nominees. Actions with respect to wetlands protection, land and water conservation, habitat restoration, wildlife preservation, scientific advancement, or other related activities may qualify.

We usually present a Conservation Commissioner of the Year award to a present or past commissioner who has made an outstanding contribution to his/her commission and community. An outstanding conservation commission administrator or other staff person is also usually recognized.

Accomplishments considered by the Awards Committee in selecting recipients include: increasing efficiency of operations, hearings, meetings; writing and passing bylaws; increasing the effective administration or implementation of the Wetlands Protection Act in protecting a community’s wetlands and water resources; spearheading important land acquisitions; developing land-management plans; and completing a significant local project. Award categories are flexible, allowing us to present the awards to deserving recipients.

  • Name, address, email address, and daytime telephone number of the nominee

  • Background information, affiliations, and pertinent achievements of the nominee (maximum ten pages)

  • Name, affiliation, email address, and daytime phone number of person/organization submitting nomination

  • Letters of support from at least two persons or organizations (maximum of five)

    We present the awards at our Annual Environmental Conference (AEC) each year. The next conference will be on March 3, 2018, at the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, We will invite the awardees and their guests to attend AEC, where they will receive their awards in a special presentation during the conference opening session.

    We publish the awardees in the MACC Conservation Quarterly, AEC Program Book, online, and in a news release for local media outlets. You can read about past awardees at Past MACC Awardees.
