Leadership Victoria seeks 2013 award nominations

Award nomination deadline Nov. 30; online submissions available this year

The Victoria Leadership Awards is looking for deserving recipients in Greater Victoria who exemplify the term “community hero” for its annual recognition of people who have made a difference in the region.

This year the nomination process is a whole lot easier. The VLA now has an electronic nomination form available to download from its website.

There are five categories, recognizing individuals – young and old – and organizations, for a variety of service-related leadership, up for public nomination.

Up for grabs for adult leaders are two University of Victoria Community Leadership Awards; two Rotary Community Leadership Awards; the United Way of Greater Victoria Award for Collaboration and Partnership; and the Royal Roads University Leadership Excellence through Coaching and Mentoring award.

Young leaders can earn the Vancity Youth Award.

The Leadership Victoria Lifetime Achievement Award, the Leadership Victoria Alumni Award and the Victoria Foundation Community Leadership Award are honorary awards and are not available for nominations from the public.

See leadershipvictoria.ca or email layla@leadershipvictoria.ca or call 250-386-2269.

Nominations will be accepted until 4 p.m. on Nov. 30.
