What We'd Like To Talk About
Project topic

I'd like to brainstorm ideas for a new awards event our organization is considering. We've given awards for 10+ years but want to reimagine the event for 2021.

Additional Context

I'm specifically looking for ideas about criteria, a scoring rubric, and a sustainability plan for this awards event.

"Phone Calls" are 1 hour, one-time calls with an organization. Learn the difference between volunteering on a Phone Call and a Project here.
