Recognizing community leaders

Provincial foundation soliciting nominations to recognize community leaders who have made contributions to community.

The B.C. Achievement Foundation is soliciting nominations for deserving individuals who have raised the quality and character of communities in the province.

Potential nominees are described as individuals who have made significant contributions to their communities in areas such as—but not limited to—arts and culture, sports and recreation, multiculturalism, environment, health care, education, civic duty, business, community volunteerism philanthropy and youth and seniors’ leadership.

The foundation is encouraging anyone wishing to submit a nomination to include a letter describing the contributions of the nominee, a brief personal history of the nominee and two current letters of support.

An advisory council of independent community leaders reviews the nominations and chooses roughly 30 submissions.

Recipients will attend a formal ceremony in the spring in Victoria and will receive the B.C. Community Achievement Medallion and a lapel pin.
