Join The Council

Explore the benefits of membership by joining the New York State Council of School Superintendents.

The Council recognizes a Retired Life Member who has shown exemplary commitment to public education after retiring as a superintendent. The Distinguished Service award is The Council's highest honor and is presented annually at our Fall Leadership Summit. Selections are made by our Distinguished Service Committee composed of current Council officers (with the word president in their title) and past presidents who are still active. 

If you are interested in nominating an individual for the 2021 award, send your nomination to Deidre Hungerford by June 1, 2021 for inclusion in the selection process. Candidates can be nominated with this nomination form or with an emailed letter. 

The Distinguished Service Committee will screen all nominations and will make their final selection of one candidate over the summer. 

Thank you to Signature Partner New York Schools Insurance Reciprocal (NYSIR) for sponsoring this award.
