The Peter B. Goldberg ARAMARK Building Community Executive Leadership Award honors one outstanding community center executive director/CEO for active voice and leadership on behalf of the community center movement. Any individual may nominate a current executive director of an UNCA or Alliance member organization in good standing.
The award is named for the late Peter B. Goldberg, president and CEO of Families International (FI) from 1994 to his death on August 12, 2011. Peter believed that executive leadership was a critical part of a high performing nonprofit organization. He was instrumental in the creation of this award and was passionate about its recognition of the role that community leadership can play in revitalizing neighborhoods.
An ideal candidate:
Nominees’ agencies will be asked to complete a short questionnaire and dossier to confirm eligibility. They will then be vetted and verified through an internal executive leadership panel of Alliance, UNCA, ARAMARK and external representatives. Finalists will be identified based on pre-determined criteria and an independent committee will select the winner. The award comes with a $40,000 grant to the recipient’s community center.
