Pyramid Awards of Excellence Luncheon 2016

Awards 2016

The Pyramid Awards Luncheon, taking place on Wednesday, October 26, from 12:30 - 2:00 p.m. at the Galt House Hotel - Rivue West Tower Ballroom, is the largest gathering of nonprofit professionals, philanthropists, and corporate citizens in the state. 

The luncheon's focus is to recognize and celebrate the essential value of our region's nonprofit sector. CNPE also specifically recognizes commanding contributions made by nonprofit organizations in six areas: Collaboration, Governance, Inclusion, Leadership, Social Innovation, and Vision.  Gordon Brown, former President & CEO of Home of the Innocents, and Joe Tolan, President & CEO of Metro United Way, will be honored with CNPE’s Lifetime Achievement Award for their transforming community contributions also during the luncheon.

The nonprofit community is dedicated to the continued growth and improvement of our city and state. The CNPE Annual Nonprofit Conference and Pyramid Awards Luncheon is a place to celebrate that dedication and get geared-up for the year to come.  In many ways, it is the starting point for the hard work that must be completed on behalf of our community.  It is also the place where the nonprofit community comes together to collaborate, grow and create new and lasting partnerships.

If you want a mega dose of inspiration and a powerful sense of community, the awards luncheon is for you. To witness the ways our community is made better through local stories of profound commitment and excellence is a special experience.
