Do You Know a Nanny Who Is Outstanding?

You are invited to have a positive, lasting impact on the nanny’s career by nominating her or him for the 2016 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 2016 INA NOTY honoree will be announced at the INA’s 31st Annual Conference, May 12 – 15, 2016 in Washington DC.
