From the Independent Sector:
Independent Sector is pleased to announce that nominations are now open for the inaugural American Express NGen Leadership Award. This award will honor one under-40 nonprofit professional who has had a transformative impact on addressing society’s critical needs.
All nominees must be under-40, work for a U.S.-based nonprofit or non-governmental organization, and have had a transformative, measurable impact within his or her field, beyond just one organization. The winner of the American Express NGen Leadership Award will be announced in late August, and will be recognized during the IS Annual Conference in Atlanta, October 20-22. Nominations will be accepted through Monday, June 14. Self-nomination is not admissible for this award.
This award extends Independent Sector’s commitment to encouraging emerging leaders in the nonprofit and philanthropic community through the NGen: Moving Nonprofit Leaders from Next to Now program. We encourage all under-40 nonprofit professionals to join us for the NGen Program at the IS Annual Conference in Atlanta this October, which will offer expanded programming for emerging leaders, including targeted workshops, an advanced practice institute, speed networking, and other opportunities to interact with leaders of all ages. Registration for IS Annual Conference in Atlanta is now open.
We look forward to seeing you at the IS Annual Conference this year, and we hope you will nominate a young, transformative nonprofit professional for the inaugural American Express NGen Leadership Award.
