Finalists Announced for 2011 Board Leadership Award

The Center for Nonprofit Advancement is pleased to announce five finalists for the inaugural Board Leadership Award. This competitive award, in partnership with Reznick Group and BoardSource, recognizes the role that boards play in building and sustaining successful organizations by executing their fiduciary and leadership responsibilities—assuring that they are well led, well supported and responsive to the people and communities they serve.

Finalists for the 2011 Award include:

Under $2 Million Budget Category

Over $2 Million Budget Category

Two organizations’ Board of Directors will be selected as the Center’s 2011 Board Leadership Award winners—one for an organization with an annual budget under $2 million and one for an organization with an annual budget over $2 million. Award winners will be announced at a Board Leadership Showcase on November 2.

The organizations winning the award will each receive:

  • a $10,000 grant
  • communication exposure through print, radio, television and social media
  • training and development opportunities for the board and CEO from BoardSource and through the Center’s Learning & Leadership Institute

In addition, two organizations will be selected as honorable mention recipients and will receive:

  • communication exposure through print, radio, television and social media
  • training and development opportunities for the board and CEO from the Center’s Learning & Leadership Institute

The award Selection Committee, made up of distinguished members of the business, philanthropic and nonprofit community, searched for examples of outstanding boards that have moved beyond recommended best practices to bring new levels of engagement and focus within the board that deliver results for the organization.

Finalists were selected through a three-step judging process including a comprehensive nomination form, in person interview with board members and the executive director, and a site visit/meeting attended by board members, the executive director and representatives from the community served.

The Board Leadership Award was launched in 2011 by the Center for Nonprofit Advancement and is sponsored by Reznick Group and BoardSource.
