About the Award:
Administrators of Volunteer Resources of BC and Better Impact are proud to present the Fifth Annual IMPACT Award to celebrate two individuals who have shown exceptional leadership and knowledge in the field of administration of volunteer resources. This award will showcase the importance of the profession and encourage all professionals in this field to continue to lead and to be inspired.
We are thrilled to announce that we are going to be accepting nominations for two awards this year – the Impact Award for Exemplary Leadership of Volunteers and the Emerging Leader Award.
- The Impact Award will be aimed at members with more than 7 years of full-time experience managing volunteer resources and recognize these individuals for their contributions to the field as mentors, leaders, trainers, and advocates.
- The Emerging Leader Award was created to recognize and honour the excellent work of administrators of volunteer resources who have been in the field for 1-7 years and to further support their professional development.
Nomination Forms – IMPACT or Emerging Leaders Award until 5pm on September 29, 2017.
Please note: current AVRBC board members are not eligible for nomination.
