In the year 2000, the Carolina Mountain Club established two awards which may be made annually. The Distingushed Service Award is made to a member who, during his/her membership, has made consistent and cumulatively extraordinary contributions to the operation of CMC, and to the achievement of its goals. The Award of Appreciation may be made to any member who, during the calendar year prior to the Annual Meeting, has rendered such exceptional service to the operation of the Carolina Mountain Club that its goals were significantly advanced. In addition, the Council may occasionally choose to grant an honorary life membership to some member.
The NOMINATION FORM has details.
