Industry Award

Plaque with a handshake inscribed on it awarded by The CCFMS

This award is for an industry or individual(s) who have exhibited service to our hobby without remuneration and who are not involved with the club. It could be a ministry or a private person who has donated their time, money, etc., or an enterprise that has been helpful to us in allowing and facilitating our collecting in one of our favorite local.

Because not all field trips are organized by the CCFMS, but also by individual clubs, the nominees for this award can be submitted by the individual clubs and/or the CCFMS executive. The winner of this award will then be chosen by the CCFMS executive.

The plaque is then given to the individual or organization to keep by any member of the executive. The plaque itself is wall mountable (approximately 6" x 8") engraved with appropriate wording including the recipientís name and year.
