Tim Kurkowski Horizon AwardJuly 24, 2009 Tim Kurkowski, trusted colleague and ZRA member since 1991, died on July 8, 2008 from stomach cancer. In honor of Tim and the professional legacy he left behind for ZRA members, I am pleased to announce the Board of Directors has developed and approved the Tim Kurkowski Horizon Award.
The ZRA Professional Category member selected for this award will be an individual who stands out among his or her peers, demonstrates early achievement and interest in leadership, and is known for actively promoting the mission and value of the Association and encouraging others to participate, to grow in their professional development and to contribute to the advancement of the registrar profession.
The Call for Nominations for the Tim Kurkowski Horizon Award will be distributed to the membership on August 1, 2009 and the relevant Guidelines posted to the ZRA website. A letter will be sent to the Roger Williams Park Zoo and Tim’s family notifying them that the Award has been established, and that we hope it will encourage others to emulate the great example in professionalism, kindness and respect for others that he set for all of us.
