2013 Campaign Train Makes Celebratory Stop at Annual Meeting & Awards Dinner

April 10, 2013

logoPlease join us as this year’s campaign train arrives at Celebration Station! United Way of the Greater Clarksville Region invites the community to its 2013 Annual Membership Meeting and Campaign Celebration on Thursday, May 9, 2013 at the Riverview Inn. Held each year to recognize campaign achievements and honor volunteer leadership, the evening’s festivities will also include dinner and the annual meeting of the membership to elect officers and board members for 2013-2014.

The highlight of the event each year is the presentation of campaign awards, including the esteemed Ben C. Parks Award.  Established in 1990 to honor the memory of Mr. Parks, a dedicated United Way supporter, this award recognizes a company or business that has conducted the best overall workplace campaign.  The recipient is selected by volunteers serving on the campaign cabinet and is based on a wide variety of criteria.  Considerations for the award include percentage of employee giving potential achieved, an increase in giving over the last year and the number of leadership donors within the organization.

Numerous other awards honoring outstanding achievements of businesses, agencies and volunteers will also be presented during the annual meeting, including the Ambassador’s Award which recognizes a local business leader; the Director’s Award which is bestowed upon an exemplary partner agency; and the Campaigning to Potential Award that acknowledges business employees who achieved notable percentages of giving as determined by their payroll potential.  Additionally, the “Above and Beyond Award” is presented to an extraordinary campaign volunteer(s) and the “Inspire” Award distinguishes a company whose campaign best inspires giving.

The Annual Meeting and Campaign Celebration is open to the public and community members are encouraged to attend.  The event begins with a social hour at 5:00 pm and dinner to follow at 6:00 pm.  To make a reservation, please contact United Way of the Greater Clarksville Region at (931) 647-4291 by May 2, 2013 or click on the following link:
