    Report Process & Schedule

    A scoring process for the Jean Runyon Community Service Award will be used to consistently evaluate each nominee against published criterion to ensure equal opportunity and consideration.

    The Jean Runyon Award Committee will evaluate each nomination against the Award Criteria, assigning a point value to the quality of each answer. The points will be assigned based on examples provided in each category as well as illustration of the leadership attributes as described. The Committee will then collaborate on their individual evaluations to identify the top nomination to advance for confirmation.

    The Jean Runyon Award Committee will identify the recipient of the Jean Runyon Community Service Award on or before January 3rd, 2022 and present its decision to the Board of Directors at the January 2022 board meeting.

    After the award recipient has been identified and confirmed, a member of the Jean Runyon Award Committee will engage with the recipient to prepare for the presentation. The award will be presented at Jean Runyon Day in March 2022.

    Jean Runyon Award Committee

    The Award Committee is comprised of 4-6 active Rotarians. They have been fully briefed on the Award Criteria and Leadership Attributes that this award is meant to honor.

    If a member of the Jean Runyon Award Committee is nominated for the Award, the member will immediately recuse him/herself from the committee and the entire selection process.
