DIVISIONAL AWARDS

Help recognize those NI members who have had a positive impact on you, your school, our organization and snowsports as an industry! If you know someone with infectious enthusiasm for instructing, a giving individual who has committed hours to an extensive NI project, a role model with a long-time history with the association, then take a moment to nominate them to receive an award. 

Nominations must be submitted in writing (email or print) to the Division Secretary. Any member of PSIA-AASI-NI, in good standing, may make nominations. Please mail or email submission to:
