Nominations are now closed for our signature 1804 List, recognizing outstanding Haitian-Americans who are making an impact in their professions and on their communities.
In the coming weeks, a selection committee of Haitian Roundtable board members, distinguished individuals from our community and our media partners will sort through hundreds of nominations to select 25 Changemakers and five Ones to Watch for the 1804 List, 2016 edition. Honorees will be announced in June and the induction ceremony will take place in New York on November 12, 2016.
Last year, a festive crowd of more than 300 members and friends of The Haitian Roundtable attended the induction ceremony at Florence Gould Hall in New York for the 2015 edition of the 1804 List, named for Haiti’s year of independence. Inductees included a federal judge in California, the first elected attorney-general of Washington, DC, the head of global diversity for Moody's, the chief financial officer at Turner Broadcasting and the president of the New York chapter of the Association of Haitian Physicians Abroad.
