September 25, 2007 - The MARRC Awards Committee needs you! After many years of coordinating the annual awards, it is time for me to pass the reins to someone new. We need a new Committee Chair, as well as more people to participate as committee members.

This is the committee that chooses the items to award to volunteers at the banquet in recognition of time worked during the year--in other words, this is where the MARRC jackets and other goodies come from. So if you have ever wished you had gotten a different award, or have ideas for what should be given as awards, this is the committee for you.

This committee also oversees the voting process for the awards that are voted on by the membership and awarded at the banquet.

Please let me know if you are willing to help make sure that MARRC awards continue to provide the quality recognition we have come to expect over the years. Thanks in advance for your help!
