The Indianapolis Mayor’s Office is currently accepting nominations for the Charles L. Whistler Award.
The award is named after a Baker & Daniels senior partner, Whistler, who gave his time and abilities to the Indianapolis community. At the time of his death in 1981, he was chairman of the Greater Indianapolis Progress Committee’s Urban Growth and Revitalization Task Force, and the White River State Park Citizen’s Advisory Committee.
Nominations are open to anyone in Indianapolis except currently appointed government employees and public officials. Candidates should reflect the passion and skill Whistler displayed for making the private-public partnership work for the overall betterment of the community.
Nominations must be received by the Greater Indianapolis Progress Committee by Sept. 15. Nomination forms are available online and those with questions can call (317) 327-3820 or visit the city’s Web site.
