The 1157 designconcepts award recipient criteria is selected based on an individual's commitment to the field. The individual receiving this award needs to have demonstrated going above and beyond in the field of donor relations - whether it is by pursuing development opportunities, pushing for every networking opportunity possible, or guiding their organization to new levels. Carol Murphrey, the 2016 award recipient, will travel to Pittsburgh from Alaska. A frequent presenter and participant in a number of professional organizations, she clearly has the opportunity to not only learn a wealth of information in Pittsburgh, but to also enlighten colleagues and other conference attendees.
