The 2017 individual accomplishments of NMTS members will be recognized in an Awards Ceremony in February 2018. To prepare for this, the NMTS Awards Committee is seeking nominations for the awards listed and explained in the NMTS Awards policy (available at http://www.nmts.org/Documents/NMTS_Policy_NMTS_Awards.pdf):
• Ride Leader of the year
• Volunteer of the Year
• Tour Leader of the Year
• Lifetime Service Awards
• Special Recognition Awards (Both serious and humorous)
The Awards Committee is asking for assistance from all members in identifying those who best deserve these awards. In January, each member will receive an email with a link to an Online Survey which will allow you to vote for your candidates for the Ride Leader of the Year, Volunteer of the Year, and Tour Leader of the Year.
Please send your nominations to the Awards Committee chairperson, Jim Fordice, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 505-803-3640. Contact Jim with any questions or comments.
If you have an interest in serving on the Awards Committee and participating in the discussions about award winners, please contact Jim.
We are nearing the end of 2017 and as the 2018 Mileage Chairman Jim Fordice is preparing to recognize those who have earned a Mileage Patch for the club rides they have ridden. You can find an explanation of the Mileage Patches in the Club Miles Guidelines at http://www.nmts.org/Documents/NMTS_Policy_Club_Miles_Guidelines.pdf.
Since some members do not desire to receive a patch and to minimize the overall cost for this recognition effort you need to tell Jim if you desire to receive a patch. Please contact Jim at email@example.com or 505-803-3640 to opt-in for a patch. Even if you have received a patch in previous years you need to opt-in for 2017.
