Nomination Deadline Extended for 2019 Rosenberg Award

January 10, 2019

Due to the current government shutdown, the D.C. Bar has extended the nomination deadline for its 2019 Beatrice Rosenberg Award for Excellence in Government Service to March 1. 

The Rosenberg Award is presented annually to a D.C. Bar member whose career exemplifies the highest order of public service. The Bar established the award in honor of Beatrice “Bea” Rosenberg, who dedicated 35 years of her career to government service and performed with distinction at the U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. She also served as a member of the Board on Professional Responsibility. 

In keeping with the exceptional accomplishments of Ms. Rosenberg, nominees should have demonstrated outstanding professional judgment throughout long-term government careers, worked intentionally to share their expertise as mentors to younger government lawyers, and devoted significant personal energy to public or community service. Nominees must be current or former employees of any local, state, or federal government agency. 

The Rosenberg Award will be presented at the Celebration of Leadership: The D.C. Bar Awards Dinner and Annual Meeting in June 2019. 

Visit the Bar’s website for additional information, including nomination forms and a list of past award winners.
