In its eighth annual poll, The Nonprofit Times, a leading business publication covering the field of nonprofit management, has named Roy L. Williams, Chief Scout Executive of the Boy Scouts of America, as one of the nation’s top 50 outstanding leaders of nonprofit organizations for 2005.
“Williams is the model of standing up for mission when some in the community think that mission should be modified,” the magazine stated in its August 1, 2005 issue. “The Boy Scouts are who they are and millions of Scouts past and present form an advocacy community and backbone of tradition in community service.”
“The 2005 NPT Power & Influence Top 50″ includes leaders of a diverse range of organizations, such as the Salvation Army, the Ford Foundation, the United Way of America, YMCA of the USA, Points of Light Foundation, National Urban League, the Internal Revenue Service, and the State of California.
