Nominations Open for LTP Alumni and Future Community Leader Awards

The Coalition is excited to open nomination for its annual awards. The first is for an outstanding alumni of the John N. Lauer Leadership Training Program (LTP). The second is for outstanding young leaders in the community, to be nominated by member organizations of the Coalition. The honors will be presented at this year’s Gala Dinner held on September 12.

Last year, the Inaugural LTP Alumni Award was presented to Luca Mórocz, who just completed a two-year assignment as a Working Group Liaison Officer for the Coalition to Defeat ISIS at the State Department where she earned stellar reviews so much so that they requested that her assignment be extended.

Dániel Barabási received the Inaugural Community Youth Leadership Award in 2023. Barabási already has a wealth of leadership experience in the Boston community. He is a Harvard University Postdoctoral Fellow, alumni of Boskola, Scout leader, Director of the Hungarian Science Club of Boston and more.
