Don't Delay! It is not too late to submit nominations for the NYSCAL Awards Programs. The deadline for submissions has been extended to March 14, 2014. Send in your nominations today!

The New York State Center for Assisted Living (NYSCAL) is pleased to announce the NYSCAL Awards and Scholarship programs for 2014.  The Awards program will recognize an Administrator, Nurse, and frontline caregiver for their work.  In addition, NYSCAL will award one adult care/assisted living facility for their overall social and recreational programming during National Assisted Living Week.  All category winners will be honored at our annual convention’s awards banquet on July 1 at the Hilton Westchester in Rye Brook, NY.  NYSCAL has mirrored this expanded awards program after the National Center for Assisted Living’s (NCAL) Awards program.  As a result, the NYSCAL winners will be nominated for the NCAL national awards.  For a copy of the NYSCAL awards packet, click here.

Also attached are the materials for the 2014 NYSCAL Volunteer of the Year Awards as well as the Nurse Scholarship application. Please share these materials with your facility leadership and professional colleagues.  Our workforce is our most valuable asset and recognizing those staff members who excel at their work is a priority for our association.
