Recognition Awards

The Highpointers Club offers several recognition awards. The qualifications to be eligible for these awards are described in Section 8 of the club bylaws. The bylaws are published annually in the Highpointers Club Directory which also lists past awardees.

Club members can submit your nominations for the club’s recognition awards which are presented at the annual convention banquet. Please keep your nominations secret. Send them only to the person designated.
