Nomination for UNA's Emerging Nonprofit Leader—2020
Nonprofit professionals make a difference in their communities each and every day. They bring with them rich perspectives, passion, and a desire to serve.

UNA has always known that our sector is special only because of the talented, thoughtful people who devote their lives to nonprofit work. 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. This year’s conference will be held online on Thursday, September 24, 2020. If you would like to nominate someone for the Emerging Nonprofit Leader award, please continue with this application. If you are nominating someone for the Outstanding Nonprofit Leader, please go to this page:

Emerging Nonprofit Leader Qualifications:
The Emerging Nonprofit Leader has a minimum of two (2) years but no more than six (6) years in the nonprofit sector. (It’s more than fine if they have experience outside of the sector.) Our view of leadership is not a title or a designation. Instead it is about the people who not only persevere in the face of obstacles, but inspire the people around them to dig deeper and work harder to get results. So your nomination need not be for an Executive Director or CEO—although that’s perfectly fine. Regardless of their role, their passion is contagious and their results are impressive.

Please note, this award is for individuals. We are unable to consider nominations for couples or groups of volunteers or professionals. If your nominee has more than six (6) years experience working in the nonprofit sector, please consider nominating them for the Outstanding Nonprofit Leader award.

Nominations will be accepted through 11:59 pm on Wednesday, July 22, 2020. We will communicate the UNA Annual Conference Committee's decision on this award by mid-August 2020. The award will be presented at the virtual 2020 UNA Annual Conference: "WE ARE..." during the morning welcome session.
