Posted by | March 23, 2010 | General | No Comments

Last Thursday I had the honor of being nominated by Russ Gaskin for the American Bar Association’s (ABA) Award for Excellence in Environmental, Energy and Resources Stewardship.

Founded in 1982, Green America is a national-for-profit membership organization with 120,000 individual members and 5,000 business members who are committed to creating a green economy.

The ABA Award honors the accomplishments of a person, organization, or group that has distinguished itself in environmental, energy, and resources stewardship.  The ABA is particularly interested in nominations that point to specific milestones of achievement by those persons or entities being nominated, with an emphasis on creative thinking, diligence in execution of a plan or program, or sustained progress in innovation or leadership.

The Nomination Narrative Russ submitted may be found here: Lara Pearson Nomination Narrative .  I hope that it will inspire you and make you smile.
