SACS Leadership Awards

Nominations now open for the 11th Annual SACS Leadership Awards

SACS Awards 11th year

 

Now in its 11th year, the SACS Leadership Awards have seen SACS contribute more than $450,000 to the professional development of leaders within the community sector.

Established to recognise examples of true leadership, the continued success of the awards and ongoing support from the sectors involved reflects their commitment to their people. Over the ten years there have been over 500 nominations and more than 3000 guests attend the Awards dinners and show their appreciation and recognise these nominees.

As we enter the second decade of the Awards, we expand the sector focus to include the Disability and Aged Care sectors. These areas have seen strong growth and, as they continue to prosper, we hope to see recognition of the emerging leaders in this space.

What is true leadership?

A true leader is someone who displays behaviours that change the experiences of colleagues and stakeholders, and which inspire people to follow their example and guidance and to innovate and improve things themselves.

 

Ask yourself…

If you have answered Yes to all of the above, then we feel that you have someone worthy of recognition.
