Don't let YOUR Favorite Leader be Overlooked ... Nominate a LEADER of the NORTH BAY!
There are too many unsung heroes in our lives. The ground-breaking risk takers who step out of their comfort zone to solve problems. The individual who singlehandedly provides the leadership to make her community a better place. The organization that gives back to its employees and customers in meaningful ways. The men and women who are leading their Latino brothers and sisters into their rightful place as community leaders and decision makers.
NBLC wants to give those leaders the recognition they deserve. But we need you to bring them to our attention. We have a wonderful Selection Committee of leaders from Marin and Sonoma Counties waiting to read the nominations and we want them to have a hard time selecting the finalists.
