Beginning in 2021, each Section may identify up to two (2) individuals for awards from IFT. The Section Outstanding Volunteer Award and the Section Outstanding Service Award will be similar in merit and recognition status, but based on different contributions to the field and IFT. Please read the detailed post on IFT Connect.
The Section Outstanding Volunteer Award honors a Section member for exceptional efforts in volunteerism in the current volunteer year. Section Officers nominate an individual for their dedication and contributions to their section and IFT. Congratulations to these volunteers for their outstanding service!
