Thank you for the feedback on the GLR Community Self-Assessment, which will also serve as the application for the 2017 All-America City Award and provide the basis for identifying those communities that will receive 2016 Pacesetter Honors. The review period on the Self-Assessment/AAC Application is open until September 15. Of course, that's not the only date of importance this Fall.

This week, we are distributing the Draft GLR 2016-2017 Network Activities & Events Calendar. The immediate upcoming dates are: 

  • AUG 1 Begin reviewing criteria for Pacesetter Honors and All-America City (AAC) Award application
  • SEPT 1–30 Participate in Attendance Awareness Month
  • SEPT 15 Complete review of draft self-assessment
  • SEPT 29 Participate in AAC Webinar, 3 PM ET
  • OCT 1 File letter of intent for 2017 All-America Award and 2016 Pacesetter Honors
The key date is the last one—October 1. Filing a letter of intent for the 2017 All-America City Award and the 2016 Pacesetter Honors is the first big step toward July 2017.
