NABS: Nick Misisco Award

Nick Misisco was a leader in the broadcast and media industry, who actively donated his time, skills, and energy to several non-profits across BC including NABS. With a career spanning several decades in the broadcast industry, Nick Misisco greatly impacted the marketing, advertising and broadcast community.

The Nick Misisco Award is awarded annually at the NABS West Golf Tournament. It is presented to anyone who, like Nick, has embodied the NABS cause and has gone above and beyond in their support of NABS and in-turn the industry as a whole. Without supporters like Nick Misisco, the services and support that NABS offers would not be possible.

The recipient of this award must showcase the same dedication and the efforts through their work and support of NABS. Nominate someone from the industry today who you believe to be deserving of this award.

Submission deadline: May 18, 2018.
