Presentation of the Brooke Mahoney Award [NYC]
This award was established by VCG Governance Matters in 2010 to honor the memory of Brooke W. Mahoney. For thirty-eight years, Brooke served as Executive Director—and Innovator-in-Chief of VCG. The award stands as a tribute to her determination to open the nonprofit board rooms of this city--and indeed this nation--to all citizens committed to giving back to the community. Long before "good governance" became a conference topic for the nonprofit sector, Brooke set out to bring diverse, strong individuals into nonprofit board rooms with the goal of creating a "brain trust" to help organizations achieve their mission.
Sponsored by Council Services Plus, this award allows us to recognize the outstanding work done by a Board of directors as it dedicates time and resources to achieving its organization’s unique mission.
This year, our event is being hosted by Proskauer Rose LLP at a cocktail reception to present the finalist organizations on April 6th, 2017. At that time, we will announce the winner of this year’s award.
We would like to congratulate all of the finalists for demonstrating exemplary governance practices.
