2019 LeadingAge Awards Call for Nominations has now closed.

Changes to the Awards Program

Big changes have come to the LeadingAge Awards program and the way we recognize members for their good work.

In recent years, LeadingAge has experienced a consistent decline in the number of LeadingAge award submissions. After much consideration, the LeadingAge board of directors approved a proposal to make changes to the current program.

The updated awards program will continue to accept nominations for:

  • Award of Honor
  • JoAnn McHugh Nurse Leadership Award
  • RWJF Trusted Voice Award for Health Equity

Learn more about eligibility and criteria or NOMINATE an individual or organization.

We will no longer accept nominations for these awards:

  • Excellence in Not-for-Profit Leadership
  • Innovation
  • Excellence in the Workplace
  • Dr. Herbert Shore Outstanding Mentor
  • Hobart Jackson Cultural Diversity
  • Trusted Voice

Introducing the LeadingAge Catalysts Program

Last month, we introduced a new recognition program: LeadingAge Catalysts. We want to recognize our members and the work they do every day, and we would like to do so all year long.

Each month, we will spotlight a LeadingAge member—an organization or an individual—demonstrating an unwavering commitment to serving people. We will recognize excellence in many areas: supports for people living with dementia, creative community partnerships, recruitment and retention practices for staff, intergenerational programs, individual leadership, mentorship, inclusivity, and more.

Nominate a deserving organization or individual for recognition as a LeadingAge Catalyst! Fill out the nomination form with details about why your nominee deserves recognition. The form will require you to log in to your My.LeadingAge account. If you don't have one already, creating one is easy.
