2021 UNA Nonprofit Leader Awards

In recognition of the people who work every day to strengthen, unify, elevate, and sustain our communities, UNA began conferring two awards in 2017. We recognize an Outstanding Nonprofit Leader and an Emerging Nonprofit Leader at the UNA Annual Conference.

Our view of leadership is not defined by a title or a designation, age, authority, or any other qualifier. Instead it is about the people who not only persevere in the face of obstacles, but those who actively engage and inspire the people around them to dig deeper and work harder to get results. Regardless of their role, their passion is contagious and their results are impressive.

The Fine Print: Nominations will be accepted through 11:59 pm on Wednesday, June, 30, 2021. We will communicate the UNA Annual Conference Committee's decisions by August 2021. Each award will be announced virtually at regroup: the 2021 UNA Annual Conference during the morning welcome session.

Please note, this award is for individuals. We are unable to consider nominations for couples or groups of volunteers or professionals. Multiple nominations for the same individual do not improve chances of selection. Members of the 2021 UNA Conference Committee are not eligible to receive a UNA Nonprofit Leader Award.
