And the Nominees for Leadership in Motion 2011 Are…

Who are the nominees for Leadership in Motion 2011? You tell me.

Now is the time for you to submit your nomination, or nominations, for this year’s COMPASS Leadership in Motion awards. The awards recognize businesses, individuals, and projects that have demonstrated leadership in supporting the goals and vision of the Treasure Valley’s regional long-range transportation plan, Communities in Motion.

We seem to be bombarded with bad news on a daily basis – the federal deficit, two wars, and the ongoing recession, just for starters. Let’s take this opportunity to turn that around and focus on good news in the Treasure Valley. What innovative projects have been completed or are underway that will improve our local transportation infrastructure? What private businesses are going above and beyond for the future of the valley? Whose work is helping fulfill the goals of Communities in Motion?

Please take a moment to submit a nomination. The process is quick and easy. A few minutes of your time will help us honor the people, businesses, and projects that are helping the Treasure Valley continue to be one of the best places in the US to live and work. Let’s share the good news.
