Nominations for Whit and Anne Griffith Community Service Award

Every January the Dallas Amateur Radio Club takes nominations for the Whit and Anne Griffith Community Service Award. Nominations for this award shall be members of the Club and may be submitted by member of either the amateur community or the community-at-large.

Nominees shall be solicited from among those amateur radio operators who have truly gone above and beyond what reasonably is defined as typical or routine community service, i.e., nominees should have made extraordinary contributions to the general and/or amateur communities.

Nominations shall be by brief (less than 250 words) written statement, sent to the board of directors by U.S. Mail or email transmission or you can use https://w5fc.org/contact/ and shall be received by the board of directors no later than the last day of January of each year.

The board of directors will consider each nominee at the February meeting, and make a final decision on the winner of the award. The winner(s) of the award shall receive a high-quality, engraved personalized plaque from the Club during the regular April Club meeting.
