Cactus Needles Knitting Guild
CNKG Distinguished Service Award
This honor is awarded to a current member for significant and meritorious service to the greater Phoenix (or beyond) knitting community. This award may be given to multiple individuals (for joint or individual activities) each year or to no individual in a given year. The individual’s contributions should not be limited to CNKG itself, but are intended to include activities in conjunction with other organizations as well. This award should emphasize a record of significant accomplishments and contributions for efforts made and results realized over a number of years that are greater than those expected of an individual. This award would honor a member's altruistic or educational activities in the service of the community. Written nomination may be made by any guild member, with a co-supporter, for review by the current board. Board approved candidates will be presented to the Strategic Planning Committee for final determination. Recognition will be in the form of a certificate and monetary gift of $100.
