CCMNFE Outstanding Adult Educator Award

Award Description

The Commission for Community, Minority, and Non-Formal Education (CCMNFE) within the American Association for Adult and Continuing Education (AAACE) requests your nominations for the 2020 CCMNFE Outstanding Adult Educator Award.  The Outstanding Adult Educator award recognizes contributions and support for adult education programs in our local communities.
