The purpose of the Lifetime Service Award is to recognize persons who have made extraordinary contributions to the Council for Resource Development through service to CRD at the national, regional and state levels and to encourage two-year college development officers to work at the national, regional, and state levels to strengthen their professional organization. This award carries with it lifetime membership in the Council.
The purpose of the CRD Congressional Award is to recognize a Congressperson or Senator who has assisted significantly in the passage of legislation that benefits higher education, especially community college education. It is also designed to assist the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) in recognizing those efforts.
The CRD Special Recognition Award for Service to Two-Year Colleges is a special recognition for people other than those receiving the CRD Lifetime Service Award and those receiving the Congressional Award. It recognizes service and potential service.
Our staff believe in connecting people, resources and opportunities. CRD helps us drive these actions by providing tools and training so we can educate our board and volunteers, strengthen our skills and knowledge base, and find support and mentoring from our peers throughout the country. We're steeped in the culture to thank our donors, and now is a chance to turn around and thank CRD and all its members for helping us be successful in building a strong and committed group of donors and volunteers. Thanks CRD!"
