Nominations for the Twenty-Second Annual Susan B. Anthony Award

Susan B. AnthonyEarlier this year we were proud to host our annual Susan B. Anthony Award Luncheon, honoring an extraordinary community leader. We have already begun the process of planning next year's event, which will take place Thursday, February 8, 2018, at the Lakewood Country Club. The selection of our next honoree is of great importance.

We are looking for the next person who exemplifies the characteristics of Susan B. Anthony -- her independence, persistence, determination and dedication in obtaining equal rights for all. Early in her life she developed a sense of justice and moral zeal. Anthony was assertive and compassionate by nature. She had a keen mind and a great ability to inspire.

To that end, we are making an appeal to our members and key community organizations to help us identify the twenty-second Susan B. Anthony award recipient and make our major fundraising event a continued success.
