Michael J. Tavlin Leadership Award
The Michael J. Tavlin Leadership Award was established in 2013 to honor former CHE Board of Trustees Chair Michael Tavlin and his service to CHE and nonprofit organizations. The award is given annually to a board member in the community who has provided exceptional and visionary commitment to board and community service.
Nonprofit staff or board members can nominate a board member. The winner is recognized at CHE's Annual Meeting, and a stipend of $1,000 is awarded to the agency of their choice to be used for board training and education.
