The awards recognition luncheon will be held at the conclusion of KAPP’s Annual Conference on Friday September 16, 2016 – Marriott East Hotel in Louisville.
Winners will receive individual recognition and awards and will be recommended to apply for the national ANCOR DSP Awards! Our very first state winner, Joshua Alford of Independent Opportunities, went on to WIN the National DSP of the Year Award and was honored at the ANCOR Conference in Chicago in May 2016!
KAPP will choose 2 Winners from each of the 4 defined regions (below) and
award 1 overall State Winner.
KAPP members have been divided among 4 geographical regions:
Western Region – Daviess, Hardin, Henderson, Hopkins, Marshall, Warren
Louisville Region – Jefferson
Northern/Central Region – Boone, Clark, Fayette, Franklin, Jessamine, Kenton, Madison, Oldham, Scott, Washington, Woodford
Southern/Eastern Region – Boyd, Boyle, Laurel, Perry, Pike, Pulaski, Rowan, Taylor, Wayne
There will be 1 nomination accepted from each KAPP Member (per provider#.)
KAPP’s Board of Directors will review nominations with the name of your organization redacted from the application, in an effort to ensure each DSP is reviewed on their own merits.
KAPP requests that the nomination does not contain information that could be used to identify the person served, including the person’s name.
