2017 Betsy Dumph Memorial Advocacy Award
Nominations must be received by Friday, May 19, 2017

Betsy Dumph was a longtime CAESP Board member who lost her ten-year battle with cancer in July of 2016. During her tenure on the CAESP Board of Directors, Betsy served in a variety of roles, including Federal Relations Coordinator. During her many years in this role, Betsy set the standard for advocacy, addressing the issues facing elementary educators and leaders. In addition to state-level activism, Betsy visited Washington D.C. twice a year, arranging all visits to our federal legislators and training the other board members who accompanied her. Even after her retirement in 2004, Betsy continued in this role for many years, until her health needed more attention.

Please help CAESP/CASE by nominating a colleague for this award, which is intended to recognize a Colorado elementary administrator who has demonstrated a commitment to advocacy at the local, state or national level. CAESP/CASE joins you in recognizing the importance of being an advocate for public education.

CAESP/CASE is now seeking nominations for the 2017 Award. Upon receipt of a nomination, the nominee will be contacted and asked to complete and return a brief questionnaire along with a resume. These will be forwarded to the selection committee, which will select the award winner in late May/early June. The award will be presented to the winner at the CASE Annual Conference at our CAESP Peer Session on July 27, 2017 in Breckenridge.

When nominating an elementary administrator for this award, the following general eligibility criteria apply. The Nominee must have demonstrated commitment to advocacy at the local (school district/school board, community, etc.), state or federal level. Advocacy efforts may include, but are not limited to:

·       Lobbying local, state or federal legislators on behalf of public education

·       Developing working relationships with local, state or national leaders on behalf of public education, including
