VANGUARD AWARDS
People have made this industry what it is today. Our challenge is to determine the best of the creators, the innovators and the risk-takers, and to honor them for their achievements. The men and women who are nominated and selected for our industry's national awards are people who excel both in business and in personal commitment to their colleagues. Without exception, they display the multi-dimensional talents of exceptional leadership. They set the example for all of us in their commitment to human rights, employee development and encouragement of minority involvement in all aspects of the industry. All our national awards recognize these broad-based leadership qualities.
