The National Association of Volunteer Programs in Local Government (NAVPLG) is currently accepting nominations for its 2014 awards. This is a great way to bring recognition to volunteer programs and volunteer managers who work in local government. Nominations are currently open for four awards to be given by NAVPLG :
- The Outstanding Volunteer Administrator will be recognized for a number of qualities including their effective use of leadership skills, creative utilization of people, resources and opportunities, a strong sense of professional ethics, and an ability to mentor youth and/or peers.
- The Innovative Program Award honors the outstanding achievements of a local government program in their creation and implementation of a program/service, which utilizes volunteers to creatively serve both their local government and their community.
- The Outstanding New Volunteer Administrator Award will be given to someone who has been in their position serving local government for three years or less.
- The Award of Merit will be presented to a deserving volunteer administrator or program at the discretion of the NAVPLG board. Membership in NAVPLG is not required to be nominated for this award.
The awards will be presented in Atlanta at the National Conference on Volunteering & Service, June 16-18. Winners will receive a plaque and a membership in NAVPLG for the coming year, along with the pride of recognition by his or her peers.
