You are invited to have a positive, lasting impact on the nanny’s career by nominating her or him for the 2017 Nanny of the Year™ (NOTY™) award. The NOTY™ award is presented annually by the International Nanny Association (INA) to recognize the personal achievements of a working nanny. The 2017 INA NOTY honoree will be announced at the INA’s 32nd Annual Conference, May 18 – 21, 2017 in Chicago, Illinois.
Who: Individuals eligible for nomination must be currently employed full time as a nanny or specialty nanny (newborn care specialist, traveling nanny, governess or temporary nanny). The nanny selected will be a professional caregiver who is a genuine advocate for children and a person who has enriched the lives of the children in his or her care. INA NOTY™ nominees must be a current member of INA. If a nominee is not a current member of INA, they must join at the time they submit their INA NOTY™ materials for consideration by the Selection Committee.
What: The nanny selected will be presented with the NOTY™ honor during INA’s upcoming annual conference. The individual selected will serve as an example of the best kind of nanny and will represent a positive role model for the in-home child care industry and our association. The INA NOTY™ will make herself available for media interviews, and will contribute 4 articles for INAVision, INA’s quarterly member newsletter that talk about her/his INA NOTY™ experience, or on another topic relevant to INA caregiver members.
When: Please read through this guide carefully and contact the INA Member Services Office by phone or by email should you have any questions. Please pay close attention to the two new deadlines we have. All nominators must fill out the Nominator’s Form by October 31st, 2016. All NOTY candidates will be given access to the digital Candidate’s Application by November 15th, 2016. They will then have until January 15th, 2017 to complete and submit the digital portfolio.
The NOTY Selection Committee reserves the right to decline any submissions that do not meet submission guidelines. The individual selected will be honored during INA’s 32nd annual conference May 18 – 21, 2017 during the Nanny of the Year™ Celebration.
Where: Chicago, Illinois.
Please note that the application process includes several forms. Both the nominee and person nominating the nanny are required to complete these forms.
