IMAGIN's Volunteer of the Year Award

The IMAGIN Board of Directors annually selects an outstanding volunteer who has dedicated hours of work and has gone above and beyond the call of duty as a member of IMAGIN.  As a volunteer-run organization, IMAGIN depends heavily on the contributions of its membership.

Board members are often recognized for their support in keeping IMAGIN running.  On occasion, an IMAGIN member will step up and provide services or assistance to the organization or to others on behalf of IMAGIN.  The IMAGIN Volunteer of the Year Award recognizes an IMAGIN member not serving on the Board of Directors, who has given the most of themselves to help further the goals of the organization.

The IMAGIN Board of Directors are currently reviewing potential candidates for the 2024 IMAGIN Volunteer of the Year.
