Do you know someone who would be a great fit for the Signature Program? We seek representation from a diverse group of men and women in business, labor, education, healthcare, arts, religion, government, community-based organizations, ethnic and minority groups, and from all geographic areas of the greater Akron region. We encourage you to recommend individuals that:
Have demonstrated commitment and concern through past and present community volunteer activities.
Have demonstrated a capacity for leadership within their own organizations through significant achievements relative to age and experience.
Have the ability to make the time commitment required with the full support of the applicant’s employer.
Please note, due to the size restrictions of each year’s class, many well-qualified candidates will not be chosen. In submitting your recommendation below this does not guarantee the individual's selection into the class—it will notify the Leadership Akron staff of an individual who should receive information about the application process.
