MANA de San Diego Member of the Year -
Recognizing and Celebrating
Outstanding Year-Round Effort
Every membership organization has them. Those “go to” members who can be counted on, even at the last minute, to get it done right.
With over 450 members, MANA de San Diego is fortunate to have many “go to” members within its ranks. Yet often, one of these exceptional members stands head and shoulders above the rest, making significant contributions to MANA throughout the year - moving the organization forward.
This exceptional member is the one member who is recognized and celebrated as the MANA de San Diego Member of the Year. This member is:
- A member whose year-long contributions are of the highest order. The problem-solver. The team leader. The team player. The one who rises to the challenge with expertise, determination, passion and selflessness. The one who works equally passionately on high profile events and the mundane nuts and bolts operational tasks.
- A member whose leadership, dedication and work product and ethic inspire others.
- A member who embodies and advances MANA’s mission of Empowering Latinas through Education, Leadership Development, Community Service and Advocacy.
At the end of each year, MANA de San Diego calls for nominations for its Member of the Year. The 2019 nominations are due Tuesday, December 3.
Any member in good standing (i.e. membership dues are current) can be nominated by a member. Officers, directors and employees are not eligible. Please submit a brief written statement detailing the merits of the nominee to MANA Executive Director, Sofia Salgado via email at email@example.com.
If more than one MANA member is nominated, the entire membership reviews the nominations and selects the Member of the Year via an online vote. This outstanding and indispensable MANA de San Diego member is then recognized and celebrated for a job well done at the Holiday Soiree.
