From new Members who have had their one year anniversary to the 15 year, and soon, 20 year anniversary, Members will be recognized. The 1 year, the 3 year, the 5 year, the 10 year, the 15 year, and the 20 year Member Since recognition program.
Staff Recognition: The Staff Recognition Awards recognize NERO Members who have participated as a Staff Member for a period of time. Staff members are sometimes overlooked by fellow members and peers. Not anymore! Now it is our opportunity to make sure that Staff Members understand that we appreciate all of the effort and energy put into producing a quality theatrical event.
Chapter Owner Since: Recognizing the Chapter Owners is just as important as recognizing the Members of our organization. Certainly the Chapter Owners
Exceptional Performance Award: The Exceptional Performance Award recognizes a NERO Member for repeated exceptional performances.
Exceptionally helpful player: Remember the NERO Member that went the extra mile for you when you joined NERO? This is your chance to nominate that person and to vote for others who are excellent examples of cordial, respectful and helpful members.
The Dedicated NPC Award: This award recognizes those individuals who have repeatedly put forth incredible effort when they volunteer and NPC an event. It is absolutely imperative that those people who NPC and put their energy into it are recognized within our organization.
The Exceptional Role-player Award: Here is the chance for all members and staff to recognize the individuals who go that extra mile to role play when at events. The person who decorates there cabin and invites all of the other players in; the person who uses word inflections and tones with each of their different characters to make them as unique and different from the others as possible; the person who takes the hit as a monster and grunts in pain; the person who waves there hand around while 'activating' the alchemical globe;
The best role-player: The BEST of all the Role-Players in a Chapter - There can only be one 'Best'.
