Calling All Nominations for the 2013 Arthur Gibb Award

VNRC is accepting nominations for the 2013 Arthur Gibb Award for Individual Leadership. This award will be presented to a Vermont resident who embodies qualities similar to Arthur Gibb, the Vermont Senator who dedicated much of his life to public service and a healthy environment. Each year a selection committee of community leaders and several of Arthur Gibb’s family and colleagues gathers to review the nominees. The committee is looking for an individual whose leadership, vision, and courage has brought about positive and lasting change in the way his or her community or our state integrates growth and conservation.

Past award winners include Smart Growth Vermont co-founder John Ewing (pictured here) and Vermont Housing Conservation Board Executive Director Gus Seelig. If you know a land use leader in Vermont who you’d like to recognize, we encourage you to nominate him or her.
