LACONIA — Lakes Region Community Services (LRCS) is proud to announce that the agency has received the 2013 Excellence in Nonprofit Management Award. LRCS Executive Director Christine Santaniello accepted the award on September 20, at the Annual Nonprofit Leadership Summit.
This award is given annually by The Corporate Fund in tribute to Walter J. Dunfey, New Hampshire business leader and philanthropist. Walter J. Dunfey was a successful entrepreneur and business executive, a co-founder and director of Dunfey Hotels (now known as Omni International Hotels) and subsequently The Dunfey Group.
The Corporate Fund 'Dunfey Award' in partnership with the NH Charitable Foundation recognizes that management in the nonprofit sector is among the most demanding and most important work in our society. Often, effective management within the nonprofit community goes unrecognized. This 'Excellence in Management' award is presented for outstanding management skill and talent within the nonprofit sector.
"The Corporate Fund Nonprofit Management Award applications were very impressive," said speaker Cameron Tease of Markem-Imaje, who presented the award. "It was difficult to make a decision among the distinguished list of nonprofits. The winners stood apart for their excellence. LRCS really impressed the judges with its nimble and innovative work in job development, its depth of commitment to those it serves, its success in selling tax credits to 37 area businesses for its relocation, its caring management practices for a staff of 350 and the effective leadership all around."
Upon reflecting on this honor, Santaniello commented that the dedication and hard work of all agency employees have played a role in achieving this recognition.
"I am extremely proud of the work of all of the LRCS employees," said Santaniello. "As I have said on more than one occasion, everyone associated with the organization contributes their piece to the whole. No one person is solely responsible for the success or trials of the organization. So while I accepted the award on behalf of the organization, it is a tribute to everyone who plays a role in supporting the families and individuals we serve. I am very proud of this organization and who we are."
As a recipient of this award, LRCS also receives and unrestricted award of $3,500. The agency's Board of Directors has decided that these funds will go to the LRCS Employee Assistance Fund in honor of the employees that made this possible.
Lakes Region Community Services is a private nonprofit, comprehensive family support agency with a primary focus of providing supports to individuals with developmental disabilities and acquired brain disorders and their families.
LRCS has offices in Laconia and Plymouth which combine to serve families residing throughout Belknap and Southern Grafton Counties.
