Member of the Year

“Each year SKOC presents a Member of the Year Award to a club member who has demonstrated outstanding service and/or exceptional commitment in his or her position. The Member of the Year is chosen by the club President, with input from the general membership and committee chairpersons.”

The award for the Member of the Year is the most prestigious acknowledgement that our membership can bestow on one of its own.
