The 2018-2019 forms for the Club Achievement Awards and the Betty Heitman Awards for State Federations have a new look. Both forms are in a fillable Excel spreadsheet and will be completed on a computer and submitted by email. The PDF paper forms have been eliminated.
"We know this is new, but we felt like this was the time to make the conversion from paper to electronic," Achievement Awards Chair Linda Smith says.
These forms are used to determine which clubs receive Diamond, Gold, Silver, and Bronze awards at the NFRW Biennial Convention. They are also a guide for running a successful club.
Here is what a club needs to know:
- Save a copy of the Excel spreadsheet award entry form to your computer.
- As you complete items, go ahead and add them. Only the cells that need information are active.
- By June 1, 2019, email the completed Excel spreadsheet to your State President and/or State Achievement Awards Chair (depending on what rules your state has).
- By June 30, 2019, State Presidents will email all the entries she has received to the NFRW Achievement Awards Committee member assigned to her state. Committee members are listed on the awards form. The State President’s email will be certification that the forms have been checked and are correct.
The process that State Federations should follow in completing and submitting the Heitman forms is similar. Details are included on the Heitman form.
