Volunteer of the Year Nominations - due April 5th

Do you work for an Alberta magazine that is an AMPA member? Do you know someone who generously donates his/her time to help your magazine? Then fill out a nomination form for Volunteer of the year by April 5th, 2010.

The Volunteer of the Year award honours one person per year who has made an outstanding volunteer contribution to the Albertan magazine industry.

You may nominate as many candidates for the Volunteer of the Year award as you like. The recipient of the award is chosen by a committee of long-standing magazine professionals.

This award recognizes and honours volunteers in Alberta’s magazine industry who have:

  • achieved and maintained an exemplary level of volunteerism in the industry;
  • contributed critically to the success of an Alberta magazine(s);
  • increased the perceived value of volunteerism within the magazine industry, particularly with employers;
  • through their actions, encouraged and motivated others to volunteer for magazines;
  • fostered greater awareness of the importance and relevance of Canadian and Albertan magazines across the country.

Recipients will be honoured at the National Volunteer Appreciation Reception held annually at MagNet, Magazines Canada’s June conference in Toronto. Magazines Canada will reimburse economy transportation, one hotel night at the conference venue, and four MagNet sessions for the award recipient; AMPA will reimburse one additional hotel night.

The deadline for nominations is Monday April 5, 2010.
