By Sheila Young, Awards Chairperson
Dear FCB members and friends,
Have you ever been thanked or recognized for something that you have done for others? How did it make you feel?
If you say “really proud” or “happy” to that question, then please read on.
This year, the FCB Awards Committee is desirous of honoring all members that deserve recognition for their devotion to improving the lives of the blind and visually impaired community.
Please take a look at our awards listed on the fcb.org website and consider a submission honoring those who take time out of their day, whether it is a state or chapter award, recognizing a member, organization, or a person in the community who blesses your life with their service to us. The chapter cost of the plaques will be determined, and you will need to send a check for the cost to Linda Jacobson, prior to the convention. If you wish to submit a chapter award, the exact spelling of your recipient must be submitted to the committee no later than April 15th, 2017.
Our committee is dedicated to keeping submissions confidential, and the recipients will be announced at our state convention in Jacksonville from June 1-4, 2017.
The committee accepts all submissions, and the absolute deadline for entry is April 15th, 2017.
If you wish to submit a letter for an award, please e-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any questions regarding our awards or system, please feel free to contact one of our committee members.
Thank you for taking time to honor the people who assist in making life better for us!
