Anyone who is striving for excellence is worthy of a certificate of recognition. Here are some examples of what types of certificates have been awarded in the past:

  • Accomplishments of local community organizations 
  • Conferences and conventions
  • Individuals making a notable contribution to their community 
  • Recreational events
  • Organization milestones (in 5-year increments)

We ask that each certificate request must recognize individuals, groups, businesses, or events that are within Supervisor Anderson’s district. If you are unsure if your certificate request fulfills this requirement, please use this form to submit it and someone from Supervisor Anderson’s office will get back to you in a timely manner.

The Office of Supervisor Anderson reserves the right to modify or deny any certificate request. Certificates may be published on your organization’s website or social media and we encourage you to hang them up in your place of business or community space.
