Nominate Someone for a VBSR Award
When a person or organization shows exceptionally strong leadership or innovation in triple bottom line practices and policies, we feel it’s worth recognizing the achievement, both to celebrate their accomplishments and to help others learn from their example. With this in mind, VBSR offers awards in four categories:
- VBSR Terry Ehrich Award for Lifetime Achievement
- VBSR Innovation and Inspiration Award
- VBSR Young Changemaker Award
- VBSR Legislator of the Year Award
Nominate Someone for the VBSR Board of Directors
Any individual who is employed by or an owner of a VBSR member in good standing is eligible to serve on the board of directors, including both non-profit and for-profit members. Members are corporations, partnerships, limited liability companies and sole proprietors. Individuals may join VBSR as “Friends of VBSR” but are NOT eligible for serving on the board and holding office. Cooperative businesses are considered for-profit members.
Terms are for three years, from January 1 – December 31.
The Committee looks for a demonstrated commitment to the mission and principles of VBSR, as well as to the organization itself, and optimum board diversity based on a balance of the following factors (the committee may conduct interviews to aid in review of the listed factors):
- geographic location
- company size
- business sector
- gender and other identities
- skills and interests
VBSR committee participation (prior or present) is preferred but not required.
