Community members, employees, volunteers and residents are presented with awards at our 64th Annual Conference at the Semiahmoo Resort in Blaine, WA.
DUPONT, WA – LeadingAge Washington’s Awards and Recognition Program is all about people who make a difference every day in the lives of those they serve. It’s about people who put quality first, deliver excellence, and inspire others to do the same. The LeadingAge Awards Program recognizes those individuals and organizations that have made an outstanding contribution in the fields of aging, health care, housing and community-based services. It is a way of saying thank you, to those who do more than what is merely expected of them, who do the right things for the right reasons.
Our very special Award of Honor category serves to highlight and celebrate a truly accomplished and visionary individual whose contributions to our industry mission and future-- in addition to long-standing support of those currently served-- go well beyond average into a universe all their own.
