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 and will present its decision to the Board of Directors.
After the award recipient has been identified and confirmed, a member of the Jean Runyon Award Committee will contact the recipient to prepare for the presentation. The award will be presented at the Club's Jean Runyon Day meeting on April 23rd, 2024..
