The PALCUS Leadership Awards are presented annually to outstanding Portuguese-Americans who have distinguished themselves by noteworthy achievement in their professions or service to the community.  Presentations are made at the annual PALCUS Leadership Award Gala where awardees are recognized for their personal accomplishments as well as for the honor that they have brought to the Portuguese-American community.













The Leadership Awards Gala provides critical financial support for PALCUS to carry out its mission to address domestic and international issues directly affecting the Portuguese-American community in the United States.  


It also brings together community leaders to share knowledge and strategic ideas of importance that shape the PALCUS agenda for years to come.
