The Western Region Merit Award

Time to submit votes for the award.
Please submit your nominations to Richelle by July 5th.  See below for the description of the award. This will be presented to the deserving individual at the General Membership meeting at Regionals.

The Western Region Merit Award
Formerly The Rich Slingerland Memorial Award
Every year since 1975 the Western Region has recognized a member or an official who epitomized friendship, dedication with integrity. The first award was presented at the US National tournament and is now one of the Western Region’s most prestigious honors. This award was established and is maintained for a deserving person who might otherwise go unnoticed.

All Western Region members are welcome & encouraged to submit nominations for this award to their local councilperson or to Richelle Muhlitner prior to the Regional tournament.
Thanks, Richelle
