NAMI Oregon honors NAMI Hall of Fame inductees

We were thrilled to induct 17 stellar volunteers into the NAMI Hall of Fame at our annual conference in Salem Nov. 2 including Aaron Moore and Kevin Kirby, pictured here, Connection Support Group facilitators for NAMI Washington County.

Each year, NAMI honors volunteer signature program leaders at two levels:

Silver – Taught 10 classes, made 30 presentations, facilitated a group for 2 years, or conducted 10 trainings;

Gold  – Taught 20 classes, made 60 presentations, facilitated a group for 5 years, or conducted 20 trainings.

This year, NAMI Oregon began a new tradition of recognizing the current year’s inductees at our annual conference. Thanks so much to these dedicated individuals for their service!
