Each year the Council of Nephrology Social Workers recognizes up to three members who have made outstanding contributions to CNSW and to nephrology social work on the local, state and regional levels. CNSW chapters are asked to nominate a Chapter member who has demonstrated dedication through professional leadership, involvement in CNSW Chapter and community activities, writing, research, etc. Merit Award recipients will be determined by CNSW Executive Committee vote, and awards will be presented at the annual CNSW meeting. Eligibility for Merit Awards has been extended to colleagues who have left the field of nephrology social work. These individuals must be nominated by a CNSW Chapter within 12 months since the last Merit Award was given. (Example: If a worker left the field in July 2011, nominations had already been submitted for 2011; therefore, he/she would be eligible to be nominated for the award to be given in May 2012, twelve months after the last award was given.)
