Community, Staff & Volunteer Awards
Friday, March 2, 2018
The Community, Staff & Volunteer Awards Ceremony provides a formal way to recognize outstanding staff and volunteers, as well as to recognize members of our community who support our inclusion mission. Awards are presented in multiple categories, ranging from advocate of the year to employee of the year, and include the President's Volunteer Service Award, a national honor administered by the Points of Light Foundation.
Invitations are mailed approximately five weeks prior to the event, and registrations open at that time.
