November – December 2016
On October 18, 2016, the NASBA Center for the Public Trust (CPT) was honored as a finalist for the Diversified Trust: New Generations Award at the Center for Nonprofit Management’s Salute to Excellence Awards Celebration. The entire CPT team attended this event, where nonprofit leaders, volunteers and community partners were commended by Nashville Mayor, Megan Barry, for making the Nashville and surrounding communities a better place. This event is the largest nonprofit awards banquet in the United States.
As a finalist, the CPT was awarded $1,000 and a trophy that recognizes the CPT for effectively using social media to reach the next generation through its Ethics in Action Video Competition. Over the last two years, the video competition has received more than 100 submissions from college students across the country, which generated more than 20,000 views online. The CPT is honored to receive this award and remains committed to engaging more young people in interactive discussions about ethical leadership and decision-making in the future.
