2.The criteria used by the Committee are weighted as follows:

~ Volunteer effort (sweat equity) – 50 points

~ Years of service – 20 points

~ Number of 501(c)(3) organizations this individual has served – 20 points

~ Other (in-kind, financial, etc.) – 10 points


A nomination form can be found [here].


A recognition party will be held Wednesday, March 16 2016, to recognize and honor the nominees and their organizations.

The nominees, their significant others, and the executive directors of the nominating organizations, will be invited. More information will follow.
