Independent Sector is accepting nominations for the 2009 American Express Building Leadership Award, which recognizes "an outstanding organization for its leadership in investing in the people of the nonprofit community." Deadline for nominations is February 16, 2009.

The award (formerly known as the Leadership IS Award) was established in 1999 to honor an organization whose programs and policies develop future leaders, both within the organization and among the people it serves. Criteria include implementation of innovative strategies for developing leaders at all levels; promotion and inclusion of a diverse workforce; and demonstrable measurement of the organization's impact on its community.

This year's recipient will be presented with the award at the 2009 IS annual conference in Detroit, November 4-6.

Anyone can make a nomination. To nominate an organization, use the online form.
