TAW Lifetime Achievement Criteria
The Tennessee Association of Woodturners Lifetime Achievement award will be directed at TAW members who have gone above and beyond the call to foster the craft of woodturning. Nominees must have contributed to the TAW and the woodturning community beyond the scope of just being a TAW member. Lifetime Achievement award winners will not be required to pay annual dues. The award is subject to the approval of a majority vote of the TAW officers and board members. All votes will be conducted by closed ballot. The TAW Lifetime Achievement Award program may be discontinued without notice by vote of the current TAW officers and board of directors.
Current TAW members may nominate a Tennessee Association of Woodturner member as a TAW Lifetime Achievement recipient. Nominations should include:
- Nominee name
- Years of TAW membership
- TAW officer/director positions held
- Involvement in other wood turning clubs
- Contribution to TAW and woodturning
- A brief summary of why the nominee should be selected
When a nomination is received the TAW officers and board of directors will review and make the final decision by a closed ballot process.
