We are pleased to announce the 2011 nominees for the Americas Leader of the Year Award. Vivit is positively bursting with activity, due to the efforts of all volunteers. These twelve nominees for Americas Leader of the Year Award exemplify the best of what all of us strive to be. Each of these individuals has special talents and strengths and has stepped forward to share them with this worldwide community.

As a whole, they all exemplify the best of leadership qualities: honesty, forward-looking, competence, inspiration and intelligence. As strong leaders, the willingness to share and be courageous in the face of persistent challenges and obstacles is the reason that members of their Chapters and SIGs nominated them for this award. From the voices of Vivit members, they are being recognized for their ability to shape the future of many, as a community and as individuals, through their leadership abilities.

The special magic of Vivit comes from the essence of what makes us human—the need for connection. These leaders understand that special magic and work to create a thriving community where member voices can be heard and knowledge-sharing and collaboration are welcomed. While diversity of thought can prompt barriers, these leaders have mastered the art of listening, and they guide our members to open dialog and open connection so that at the end of the day, personal growth and expertise can develop.

The Vivit Board of Directors thanks each one of these nominees for their ongoing efforts to help build a community of people that spans 14 countries, 53 Chapters and SIGs, and 5800 worldwide members. These individuals are growing to be outstanding leaders of the future: for this community, for their  organizations, for their families and for their friends. Through the Americas Leader of the Year Award, Vivit expresses our gratitude and recognizes the contributions of these twelve nominees for their excellence
