Goodwill Committee



 Unit 253 is proud to support both the District 7 Goodwill Committee and the ACBL Goodwill Committee.  These committees promote goodwill within the bridge community and recognize ACBL members who demonstrate high standards of ethical behavior, sportsmanship and volunteerism.  Unit 253 follows the directives in the District 7 Goodwill Policies and Procedures.

 Each year the Units in District 7 nominate individuals from their Unit to become members of the District 7 Goodwill Committee.  Any member of Unit 253 may nominate another Unit 253 member in good standing for the District 7 Goodwill Committee.

 Goodwill Committee members from Unit 253 include:

 a)   ACBL members nominated and selected by Unit 253 to the District 7 Goodwill Committee (including those formerly in Unit 114), and

 b)   ACBL members from Unit 253 appointed to the ACBL Goodwill Committee by the District 7 Director (including those formerly in Unit 114). 

A Goodwill Committee appointment is for life as long as the

individual remains a “member in good standing” as defined by


Members selected or appointed to the Goodwill Committees receive a Goodwill pin and are invited to attend an annual Goodwill banquet held at one of the District 7 Regionals each year.
