Volunteer Spirit Award Nominations

Submissions must be received by January 25, 2012 
Recognize your exemplary volunteer with the Volunteer Spirit Award! 
In 2010, the Board of Directors for Friends of Georgia State Parks & Historic Sites unanimously voted to create the Volunteer Spirit Award in memory of Jim Burson. Jim’s tireless contributions to Friends of Amicalola Falls, the state Friends board and other organizations make him a role model for volunteers everywhere. Through this award, Friends will honor one volunteer, couple, or family each year who has exemplified the spirit of volunteering and supporting Georgia State Parks & Historic Sites. The award will be presented at our annual conference, February 3-5, 2012 at Stone Mountain. 
Friends invites DNR staff to submit recommendations for this year’s recipient. The candidate Friends member should demonstrate a commitment to chapter activities and support the chapter's overall mission as well as: 
• Demonstrate their commitment to Georgia State Parks & Historic Sites through regular volunteer service. 
• Serve as a role model for other volunteers and guests by demonstrating a true love for and commitment to Georgia’s natural and/or historic resources. 
• Display an infectious passion and commitment through advocacy, community involvement and overall outreach regarding the importance of Georgia’s resources.
