Annual Society Volunteer Awards
||Annual Outstanding Volunteer|
The contribution of volunteers to the welfare of local genealogical organizations is the crucial factor in keeping those organizations operating smoothly. In 2003 the Washington State Genealogical Society established a non-competitive program to give wider recognition to the outstanding people your organization has selected to be honored, as well as the many other outstanding volunteers from around the state.
