The Conductor Award was created in 2016 to specifically recognize outstanding volunteer leadership and impact in the field. The name Conductor award comes with the idea that great field leaders operate very much like the conductor of an orchestra –they have to know the parts/responsibility of many (brass, strings, percussion) and they have to get all of these sections to play together AS ONE! A great field leader must do the same with SCORE. Volunteers, chapters, districts, committees, etc.
The conductor award is chosen by the VP of Field Operations and the CEO and is announced at the National Leadership Conference in July/August of that year.
