VMBA Annual Awards

Bill Axselle Award of Excellence

In the words of the of the first winner of this award, Boyd Allison, “Bill Axselle was the legal counsel for legislative efforts of the VMBA for over two decades and was a tireless advocate, never at a loss for a solution to the many legislative issues our industry faced. His ability to bring differing sides together was amazing as witnessed by those lucky enough to have worked with him.” The Bill Axselle Award of Excellence was established in 2018, prior to Bill’s death, as a way to honor him and his contributions to the VMBA and our industry.  Nominations for this award are solicited from VMBA members, then voted on by the VMBA Board of Directors.  It is awarded each year at the VMBA Annual Meeting during Annual Convention.
