Seeking Oak Bay’s best

Nominations are now open for Victoria Leadership Awards

Christopher Causton speaks as one of two winners of the Rotary Community Leadership Award in 2012. Elected as an Oak Bay councillor in 1987

The time of year has come to nominate a dedicated Oak Bay hero who exemplifies the generous spirit of community leadership and volunteerism. The Victoria Leadership Awards are back for the 11th consecutive gala ceremony scheduled for February 2015.

“Victoria’s greatest asset is its network of engaged and caring citizens,” said Kate Mansell, chair of the Victoria Leadership Awards. “These awards celebrate the very best of diverse volunteer leadership in our community.”

Nominations are open for the University of Victoria Community Leadership Award; Rotary Community Leadership Award; United Way of Greater Victoria Award for Collaboration and Partnership; Vancity Youth Award; and Royal Roads University Leadership Excellence through Coaching and Mentoring Award.

Three additional award categories – the Leadership Victoria Lifetime Achievement Award, the Leadership Victoria Alumni Award and the Victoria Foundation Community Leadership Award – are honorary awards not open to public nominations.

The awards will be presented – and recipients in each category announced live – on Feb. 19, 2015 at a gala ceremony at Crystal Garden from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Nomination deadline is Dec. 1 at 4 p.m. Get nomination packages, and individual award criteria for the V Awards online at leadershipvictoria.ca/v_awards.html.
