The Honey Gantner award is presented annually by the NJSGA for dedicated service by a volunteer. It acknowledges a volunteer’s commitment, outstanding service, and contributions to the NJSGA. Nominations may be made by current NJSGA committee members on behalf of any NJSGA volunteer, including the Board of Trustees, Advisory Committee, Tournament Committee, Course Rating Committee, Women’s Committee, Caddie Scholarship Board of Trustees and Caddie Scholarship Committee. The recipient is honored at the Annual Meeting.
Candidate must be a volunteer (past or present) from one (or more) of the above NJSGA Committees.
He/she must have demonstrated exemplary service on behalf of the NJSGA for a period of time.
This is strictly a NJSGA service nomination; outside achievements should not be considered.
Nominations would be submitted by current members of each NJSGA Committee and collected by the NJSGA staff.
NJSGA staff would submit a list of all nominees to the NJSGA Executive Committee who would narrow the selections to three finalists.
These three finalists would be presented back to each NJSGA committee who would have an opportunity to comment on or endorse their choice of volunteer of the year.
Initial nominees would be solicited by the NJSGA in May, reported to the Officers in June, and finalists presented back to the Committees in July. The honoree would be announced in August and honored at the Annual Meeting in October.
