Steve Morris, of Boston, Massachusetts (USA), is the recipient of the 2019 Chairman’s Award, presented by NPAworldwide. The Chairman’s Award, established in 1996, recognizes a current or former NPAworldwide owner, manager, recruiter, or staff member, whose contributions and service to the network represent a substantial and lasting benefit. Nominations are sought from the NPAworldwide membership, and the board of directors selects the recipient by secret ballot.

Mr Morris is the owner of Van Grace, Inc. ( in the greater Boston area. He served two terms on the NPAworldwide Board of Directors and has been a longtime volunteer for the network.

“Steve Morris is the consummate volunteer,” commented NPAworldwide president Dave Nerz. “He steps up when asked, goes out of his way to welcome new members, shares his knowledge with others, and take his responsibilities seriously as a member-owner of NPAworldwide. We are a better organization thanks to his leadership.”

“I was surprised and humbled to learn I would receive the 2019 Chairman’s Award,” remarked Steve Morris. “I treasure this recognition from my peers and the NPAworldwide Board of Directors. I will be forever grateful for this honor and will endeavor to continue giving back to NPAworldwide.”

The Chairman’s Award was presented during a special luncheon as part of the NPAworldwide Global Conference.
