Friday is the last day to nominate someone for the 40th American Express Women & Business Conference and Wells Fargo ATHENA Awards Luncheon are now being accepted.

The ATHENA Leadership Award is presented annually by chambers of commerce, women’s organizations and universities.

Recipients are individuals who:

  • Have achieved the highest level of professional excellence
  • Contribute time and energy to improve the quality of life for others in the community
  • And, actively assist others, particularly women, in realizing their full leadership potential.

In addition to the ATHENA Award, four other women will receive the Pathfinder Award, which is given to community leaders who “create new paths” and promote the development and recognition of women in business.

Can you think of someone who fits these characteristics?

Nominate them now or else you will have to wait until next year.

A community’s future is determined by the quality of its public and private sector leadership.

If a community is truly interested in trying to improve and innovate, then it must begin with a firm commitment to thoroughly analyze the community’s problems.

We must identify, educate, train, and support a team of public and private sector community leaders to work and fix those problems.

Without this type of commitment, a community will not develop the intelligent, creative and energetic local leadership network that is essential for the community to achieve its full potential.

The Salt Lake Chamber is dedicated to providing the necessary direction to establish, train and support a network of aware and knowledgeable citizens ready to take on the challenges of an ever-changing society.

To address this, the Salt Lake Chamber formed Leadership Utah, a yearlong program that features 10 monthly, daylong sessions that discuss important topics with experts.

Applications for the 2016-2017 class close tomorrow! Apply now.
