Top directors and medalist quartet members justifiably receive high praise. But there are many other members who work behind the scenes in non-singing tasks to support our Society and the musical accomplishments. They are the marketing, public relations and bulletin volunteers who help communicate our message and our music, both within the Society and to other music lovers.
PROBE wants to recognize the top practitioners among them. And you can help—by nominating them for the prestigious PROBE Hall of Honor award established in 1989. Nominations are open for persons who will be considered for recognition at each summer's international convention.
A nominee, living or deceased, must have been a PROBE member for at least 10 years, and must have made contributions to PROBE and its purposes beyond the normal duties of performing PROBE-related functions for a chapter or district.
Any current PROBE member may make a nomination. If you're not a member, join now (it's just $10.00 yearly -- ask me) OR pass your nomination on through one of our members (your editor, webmaster or PR guy). If they're not a member, ask them why not?
The nomination must be in writing, specifically describing the nominee's services and contributions. Include supporting evidence if available. You also may include letters of support from other persons who know the nominee.
Your nomination need not be extremely sophisticated or professionally prepared. The selection is not based on the presentation, but on the nominee's merits. Further, this is not a competition, but recognition.
Deadline is May 15th, 2016.
