Our Highest Individual Honor

Each year, we award our highest individual honor – the TASBO Commitment to Excellence Award – to the member who best distinguishes themselves within their profession, within their district and within TASBO. TASBO will recognize the recipient and two finalists at the TASBO Annual Conference Awards Luncheon.

On behalf of the recipient and finalists, each year TASBO donates to the TASBO Scholarship Fund. In addition, TASBO Strategic Partner AXA will generously provide a donation of $3,000 to the recipient and $1,000 to each of the finalists for programs in their home district.
