CHANGE THE WORLD: Did you devise some idea, concept or method that made an impact on the lives of people in your personal sphere and beyond? Our members are devoted to the spirit of innovation. When the creative instinct produces something that clearly alters the way we think and act and stands out from the rest, that needs to be recognized and honored. This goes to the biggest difference-makers.
MASTER MENTOR: The mentor is a time-honored figure in business and government. Mentoring is essential to a healthy professional community. That’s why our members who serve as mentors are special. The ones who truly stand out in each region will be recognized and honored. Then the finalists from the regions will vie for the title of Master Mentor, which goes to the individual who has gone the extra mile and done the most good in that critical role.
BREAKTHROUGH THINKER: In a sports context, this would be Rookie of the Year. But it’s not necessary for a candidate to be in the first year of a professional career in order to be eligible. Rather, the winner of this honor will be recognized for breaking through with some innovation that raises that individual to an exciting new level that demands attention. So many of our members toil in obscurity, even while they’re quietly changing the world. This award – with regional winners and later one finalist – will go to the person who suddenly takes that bold step into the spotlight.
