March – April 2017
Since 2005, the NASBA Center for the Public Trust (CPT) has supported and promoted ethical leadership within the business community. After successfully honoring ethical business leaders for more than a decade through the Being a Difference Award, the CPT revised the program in 2017 by establishing the Bill Daniels Being a Difference Award program, sponsored by the Daniels Fund.
This recognition is reserved for leaders who go beyond making a difference and establish a reputation for continuously Being a Difference by leading their businesses
and communities with honor and integrity.
The award is named in honor of Daniels Fund founder, the late Bill Daniels. An entrepreneur, Bill Daniels was an early cable television pioneer and was essential to
the formation and growth of the industry. He is fondly remembered for his reputation for ethics and integrity, and for his sincere compassion for those in need. Through the Bill Daniels Being a Difference Award program, the CPT recognizes individuals who practice these high standards of ethical leadership.
The CPT will annually award up to four deserving individuals with the Bill Daniels Being a Difference Award. The criteria for this special award incorporates the eight ethical business principles Bill Daniels used to guide his actions and decisions. These principles include; integrity, trust, accountability, transparency, fairness, respect, rule of law
Nominations are accepted year-round, and the CPT encourages individuals and organizations to nominate deserving candidates by June 15, 2017, to be considered for the next class of honorees. Visit thecpt.org/awards to learn more.
