Venango Chamber Now Accepting Nominations for Citizen of the Year
The Venango Area Chamber of Commerce is now accepting nominations for its Outstanding Citizen Award. Each year, the Chamber bestows the award upon an individual or individuals who consistently evidence civic leadership through volunteerism and service to their community. The Outstanding Citizen Award is among the Chamber’s most prestigious community recognition awards.
The nominating committee is looking for Venango County citizens who demonstrate a well-rounded and deep-rooted commitment to family and community. Nominees must be community volunteers with records of extensive and diverse participation in community service and civic involvement, aside from accomplishments directly related to the candidate’s employment.
Those wishing to nominate individuals for the Outstanding Citizen Award must submit an official nomination form along with a nominating letter that describes the nominee’s background and qualifications for this award. Those having previously nominated candidates for the Outstanding Citizen awards may re-nominate a candidate by sending an updated nomination letter along with a nomination form. All selections are made without regard to race, color, creed, age or national origin.
The 2015 Citizen of the Year will be recognized at the Chamber’s Annual Dinner, to be held on Wednesday, February 24th.
