City Opens Nominations for Civic Volunteer of the Year

– City Announces Civic Volunteer of the Year Award with Nominations open until May 16. –

“The City of Piedmont is seeking nominations for the inaugural ‘Piedmont Civic Volunteer of the Year Award.’ This award recognizes a Piedmont resident for extraordinary service to the community. Announced by Mayor Margaret Fujioka at her inauguration and unanimously approved by the City Council at their meeting of April 7, 2014, this award will be given to a Piedmonter who has made significant cultural, political, health, safety, environmental, recreational, and/or social contributions that have enriched the community. The intent of the award is to annually recognize an individual whose efforts have helped to improve the quality of life in Piedmont.

“This award provides an excellent opportunity for the City to formally recognize and express appreciation to an individual for his or her contribution to making Piedmont a better place,” said Mayor Margaret Fujioka. “It is my hope that this award will inspire others to volunteer for the greater good of our community now and in the future.”

The 2014 Piedmont Civic Volunteer of the Year Award will be presented at the City of Piedmont Volunteer Recognition Ceremony where those who serve on City Commissions and Committees and the winners of the annual Betty C. Howard Award for services to the Piedmont Recreation Department will be recognized. The Recognition Ceremony will be held at the Piedmont Community Hall in late spring.

The Piedmont Civic Volunteer of the Year Awardee will be chosen by the Mayor and a selection committee. Volunteer efforts during the 12-month period commencing January 1, 2013 through December 31, 2013, will be considered. Nomination materials are available on the City’s web site at www.ci.piedmont.ca.us [and below.]  Please submit your nomination(s) to the Office of the City Clerk, 120 Vista Avenue, Piedmont, California or via email to cityclerk@ci.piedmont.ca.us by May 16, 2014.

The names of those on the “select committee” and the date of the Awards event have yet to be announced.  For the Nomination Form and further information, click on the links below.
