Awards Program

The Awards Committee would like to encourage each Region Administrator to share our news and opportunities for recognizing members at regional workshops and network luncheons. The Awards Committee has been working hard to simplify the recognition process. Now it is currently easier than ever to nominate someone for “Member of the Year” or “Distinguished Service”. Nomination forms must be received by August 15 in order to be considered.

If there are members interested in serving on our committee, we have several whose terms are expiring and we would love to have them join us. We typically meet two or three times a year. Meetings are normally held in the small conference room at Archives and History as that seems to be a central meeting point for all. We encourage all regions to participate so that all are represented. Anyone interested in serving should contact Yvonne Feaster at y.feaster@yorkcountygov.com.
