NASW depends on the power of volunteers for most of our programs and activities, and we have over 200 active volunteers annually. This annual award recognizes volunteers whose efforts for NASW go beyond the call of duty.
During the ScienceWriters2014 meeting, Amber Dance and Dennis Meredith were awarded the annual Diane McGurgan Service award, which recognizes outstanding volunteer contributions to the National Association of Science Writers. The award is named after NASW's former executive director Diane McGurgan. Amber and Dennis co-chair the Science in Society Journalism Awards program.
