Impactful people, projects and ideas will be acknowledged as part of a new and exciting event – the “Ideas to Actions Summit” – hosted by the Red River Regional Council (RRRC).
What began as an annual meeting for the regional economic and community development agency is now emerging as an event that will showcase visionary leadership, action, and determination that positively impacts the region’s communities. This year’s Summit is set for November 4, 2015 in Grafton.
“We want to expend more effort acknowledging the time, determination, and enthusiasm put forth by our local citizens, organizations, governments, and businesses that result in making our region a great place to live, work, and thrive,” said Dawn Keeley, Executive Director of the Council. “We are anxious to begin receiving nominations, as we know there are so many deserving people, projects and ideas in our region.”
The new awards have been given names that represent the work being recognized. The North Star Award will go to the idea(s) that illuminate opportunities or create a guiding light for progress within a community. The Catalyst Award will recognize an individual who acts as a “kickstarter” for an idea or project. The Determination Award will go to a successful project that has created a significant impact on a community.
The RRRC is currently accepting nominations for three awards to be presented at the Summit in November. The deadline for nominations is October 9, 2015.
