Excellence in Governing Board Leadership

Excellence in Governing Board Leadership

The Beacon Awards are designed to honor excellence in nonprofit organizations. They are intended to raise awareness of excellence at work in our local nonprofit sector and to honor volunteers and individual staff.

Selection Criteria
• Rationale for Selection - This section requires that the nominator succinctly state the reasons for which the individual board member has been nominated by the organization. While the rationale may include fundraising work, it may not be the primary reason for which the individual is nominated. Examples of board service excellence can include: advocacy, maintaining or refocusing the organization on the mission, driving the organization toward leadership in the field of service, promoting a culture of transparency both internally and externally, and establishing or promoting a results-oriented culture.
• Endorsements from staff and board peers supporting the rationale
• Description of how the nominee motivates others and leadership skills exhibited

Presentation of Awards
An independent awards committee will review all applications. The honorees chosen for the awards and all other nominees will be honored at the Nonprofit Management Center Beacon Awards Luncheon currently scheduled on September 30, 2021 at the Odessa Marriot Hotel and Convention Center. Honorees will receive an award and $1,000 for the nominating organization.

If you have any questions, please contact Sarah Lauritzen at (432) 570-7971 or slauritzen@nmc-pb.org.
