Independent Sector Announces Call for Nominations for the 2003 John W. Gardner Leadership and Leadership IS Awards
Deadline: January 31, 2003
Nominations are now being accepted for Independent Sector’s 2003 John W. Gardner Leadership Award and the Leadership IS Award.
The John W. Gardner Leadership Award honors outstanding Americans who exemplify the leadership and ideals of John W. Gardner, founding chairperson of Independent Sector. The award is designed to recognize individuals working in or with the voluntary sector who build, mobilize, and unify people, institutions, or causes. The work of the Gardner Award recipient must have national or international impact, transform his or her chosen field, and contribute to the common good. Award nominees may be of any age, and nominations should be made without the candidate’s knowledge by filling out the nomination form and submitting a letter of nomination. The award recipient will receive $10,000 and an award statuette at the 2003 Independent Sector Annual Conference in San Francisco, November 2-4, 2003.
The Leadership IS Award honors outstanding organizations for their leadership in investing in the people of the independent sector as they work to build community. The award is designed to support this important principle by recognizing an organization that incorporates the development of future leaders in its policies and daily operations. The award also provides an opportunity for Independent Sector to address directly the value and importance of investing in the people of the sector by celebrating an institution that embodies this principle in spirit and practice. Anyone may nominate an organization to receive the Leadership IS Award by submitting a nomination form and a brief letter of nomination. The winning organization will receive $10,000 and an award statuette at the 2003 Independent Sector Annual Conference in San Francisco.
