Nominations are being accepted for the North Bay Business Journal's inaugural Non-profit Leadership Awards that will honor outstanding executives and other professionals in this critical sector of the economy and community.

"The North Bay day in and day out demonstrates through the region's non-profits a high commitment to volunteerism, community building and help for those in need," said Business Journal editor and associate publisher Brad Bollinger. "These awards are intended to shine a light on and honor the people who display exceptional leadership in these important community organizations."

The awards will be presented as part of the annual Non-Profit Boot Camp in October, which is a collaboration between the Journal, Pisenti & Brinker LLP Certified Public Accountants and Advisors and other partners. Nominees will be sought in several categories including Innovation, Merger-Acquisition, Fund Development and others.
