Nominations sought for leadership awards

Leadership Victoria is calling for nominations for its 11th annual Victoria Leadership Awards

Leadership Victoria is calling for nominations for its 11th annual Victoria Leadership Awards. The public has the chance to nominate local volunteers who demonstrate outstanding community leadership.

“It’s really about motivating and inspiring others by leading by example,” said Ivan Watson, Victoria Leadership Awards communications director. “When you honour and celebrate the everyday heroes, you really hold them up as positive role models in our community.”

There are eight categories in total, five of which are open for nomination from the public.

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

The three awards not open to public nominations are: the Leadership Victoria Lifetime Achievement Award; the Leadership Victoria Alumni Award; the Victoria Foundation Community Leadership Award.

To nominate someone for one of the first five categories, go to leadershipvictoria.ca to fill out a nomination form.

Recipients of the awards will be announced on Feb. 19, 2015 at a ceremony at the Crystal Garden.
