The Beekman Award is MAASE’s preeminent award presented annually in August at the Summer Institute. Since 1973 when Marvin Beekman became the first recipient, the award has recognized individuals who have distinguished themselves in the administration and leadership of special education programs and services. The MAASE President-Elect solicits nominations and accompanying information from the membership. A representative committee, appointed by the President-Elect, reviews the information provided and chooses the award winner based on a combination of education, experience, current administrative responsibilities, honors and special recognition, organizational memberships and involvement, community activities, and any distinguishing qualities that makes a candidate worthy of the award.
