At its Convention the GCFM recognizes outstanding achievement by member Clubs, Districts and Individuals. GCFM and NGC awards are presented at the GCFM Convention Awards Luncheon. NER Awards are presented at Fall Conference.
The GCFM Board of Directors welcomes the establishment of new awards. Should anyone desire to establish an award, that individual should contact the GCFM Awards Chairman who will present the award proposal to the GCFM Board of Directors for acceptance.
GCFM Awards may be discontinued with the consent of the donor, if applicable, and by vote of the GCFM Board of Directors. Requirements for GCFM Awards may be amended with the consent of the donor, if applicable, and by vote of the GCFM Board of Directors.
Traveling trophies are the property of the GCFM and may be awarded to member clubs in recognition of superior activities. The GCFM will be responsible for the cost of engraving trophies with the club name and award year. Clubs are responsible for returning the trophy in clean, polished condition, to the GCFM Awards Chairman by March 1 each year. If shipped, the trophy must be carefully packed and insured for replacement value by the club (such information available from Awards Chairman). The club is responsible for shipping cost.
AWARD YEAR: JANUARY 1 TO DECEMBER 31 The deadline for each GCFM award application is April 1 unless otherwise noted.
