Nominate for Man and Woman of the Year

Beginning October 10 and running through noon on November 5 Greater Tucson Leadership (GTL) is accepting nominations for the “2013 Tucson Man and Woman of the Year and Founders Award” recipients. GTL encourages community members to nominate deserving individuals and is seeking nominations from a wide cross-section of the community. The goal is to attract nominations which highlight Tucson’s pacesetters, individuals who are inspiring, effective and compelling.

On Friday, February 7, 2014, at 6:30 p.m. the process will be capped off when GTL presents The 2013 Tucson Man and Woman of the Year and Founders Award Gala at Loews Ventana Canyon.

The Man and Woman of the Year and Founders Award event is a time-honored and respected tradition in Tucson that was established in 1952. It is an annual signature event presented by GTL which strives to reflect Southern Arizona and its leaders in a current, relevant and inspiring light. Last year’s honorees were Rick Myers, Man of the Year, Colleen Niccum, Woman of the Year and Tom Chandler, Founders Award.

The award program honors a man and woman who have distinguished themselves for active support of community projects at personal sacrifice, for aiding those persons less fortunate and for living in a manner which inspires affection, respect and admiration.

The Founders Award was established in 1985 to augment the Man and Woman of the Year awards. This distinctive award cites individuals who have demonstrated significant long-term community involvement and accomplishments and who have helped shape the community in a quality, positive manner.

The mission of Greater Tucson Leadership is to inspire, develop, and promote leadership to impact the Tucson region, as well as to identify outstanding leaders.  Keeping in line with this mission, GTL is proud to present The Man and Woman of the Year and Founders Award.
