Over the years I’ve served on a lot of different boards and committees. One task which is always gratifying, but sometimes challenging, is soliciting nominations of colleagues, friends, or neighbors who should to be honored for their accomplishments. Maybe it’s the difficulty in filling out forms, or taking time away from our busy schedules to think about a task that is not part of our daily routine, but nominations are sometimes slow in arriving. And often when they do arrive, the same few names are mentioned or the nominations come from the nominees themselves. There are a lot of unsung heroes doing wonderful things. Currently the Anne Arundel County Arts Council is looking for nominations for Annie Award recipients. Would you take the time to fill out a nomination form?
