2014 Volunteer Awards – Nominations Due 11/15

AMC is seeking nominations for the following clubwide awards, to be announced at Annual Summit on January 25.

The Distinguished Service Award is presented annually to a member in recognition of outstanding contribution to the work of the club. The award is a symbol for all club members that we are an organization of volunteers working together in service to the public and for the preservation of our outdoor heritage. Nominations are accepted for individuals or couples who have been working in a volunteer capacity over many years in the service of the club.

The Volunteer Leadership Award recognizes AMC's outstanding volunteer leaders who demonstrate the desire to share their time and expertise in the pursuit of AMC's recreation, conservation, and education mission. The Volunteer Leadership Award recognizes one or more dedicated volunteers who, in addition to contributing many hours, demonstrate outstanding passion and commitment and are instrumental to AMC's activities, programs and mission

The Joe Dodge Award is presented to a member of the AMC community who best exemplifies the type of high quality public service and mountain hospitality that became the hallmark of Joe Dodge's long and distinguished career at Pinkham Notch. A nominee can be a current employee, former employee, or volunteer. The essential idea is that it recognizes the ideals and practices of Joe Dodge and the award recipients, and that its presence may stimulate others to go and do likewise. The Award focuses on actions that relate to AMC activities in the White Mountains - particularly the huts and trails and Pinkham Notch.
