YWCA Top Finalist for 2013 Prudential Leadership Awards
for Exceptional Nonprofit Boards

The YWCA of Northwest Georgia was recognized as a Top Three Finalist for the 2013 Prudential Leadership Awards for Exceptional Nonprofit board at this year’s BoardSource Conference in Los Angeles on November 8. This competition, proudly supported by Prudential and The Prudential Foundation, honors the innovative and transformative work that nonprofit boards are doing to position their organizations for success. In July, BoardSource and Prudential invited organizations to apply for a leadership award by submitting a narrative and video addressing their board-driven achievement and the lessons the board and staff members learned through the process of embracing and implementing bold leadership. After receiving almost 50 applications from every segment of the nonprofit community, a team of judges selected the three finalists.
