Frederick O. Kiel Distinguished Service Award

The Frederick O. Kiel Distinguished Service Award recognizes an individual for distinguished service to NABL over an extended period of time. Frederick O. Kiel served as NABL's fourth president and was editor of The Bond Lawyer for twenty-five years.   The awards will be presented during NABL’s Annual Membership Meeting at the 42nd Bond Attorneys’ Workshop, October 4, 2017 at the Fairmont Chicago.

The Frederick O. Kiel Distinguished Service Award recognizes extraordinary service to NABL over an extended period of time. The Kiel Award will be presented to Fredric A. Weber of Norton Rose Fulbright’s Houston office.  “Rick Weber’s contributions to NABL are countless and span more than three decades of committed service to the organization, including leading NABL as President in 1991-92, assuming the editor’s chair for The Bond Lawyer in October of 2015, and his continued willingness to volunteer for new NABL projects (particularly securities law comment projects).  It is an honor to present this well-deserved award to him," said MacLennan.
