NOMINATIONS BEING ACCEPTED FOR THE DISTRICT 7 GOODWILL COMMITTEE

 ACBL District 7 is now requesting nominations for the District 7 Goodwill Committee from each Unit. The Goodwill Committee is comprised of individuals who are recognized and honored for making the game of bridge more enjoyable for everyone through their actions, which in some cases is by volunteering, teaching, mentoring or just helping others.  It is strictly an honorary committee.  Each honoree is given a Goodwill pin and is recognized at a Goodwill dinner at the Greenville Regional.  The honoree does not have to attend the dinner.  

Our Unit is allowed to nominate two individuals to be recognized for this honor for 2023.  If you know someone you believe is worthy of this honor, please submit a written narrative of the person to Judy Fendrick by e-mail at bobfendh@bellsouth.net.  Nominations must be received no later than December 17, 2022.

If you have any questions about writing the nomination, please contact Judy by e-mail or phone at 678-358-2488.  The Unit board will review the nominations and select two honorees.  For more information about the Goodwill Committee and what represents, click the following link.  Goodwill Message (district7bridge.org)
