In 1978, the Human Services Planning Council (HSPC) established the Katherine S. Rozendaal Award to honor a person whose volunteer leadership and activities have had a positive impact on the Schenectady Community. YWCA NorthEastern NY is proud to continue the presentation of this prestigious award and invites the community to recognize the valuable contributions of volunteers.
In order to be eligible for the award, the following criteria must be met:
- the nominee must be currently serving as a volunteer in Schenectady County;
- the nominee should be one whose leadership and activities have had a positive impact on the community and those served as demonstrated through creativity, delegation, management skills, recognition by peers, and interpersonal skills;
- the nominee should be one whose activities are diverse and who has demonstrated commitment over the years; and
- the activities for which the individual is being nominated may not be part of a paying job.
Nominations are now open for the 2019 Katherine S. Rozendaal Award. Please download a nomination form HERE or email Kerrie Wolf-Piechota to request a form. The award will be presented at YWCA NENY’s Annual Meeting on May 21, 2019.
