GLR is pleased to announce that Betty Clyde of the Columbus Area Chapter (Ohio) is a recipient of one of the regional EGA 2020 Gold Thread Awards. The annual awards recognize outstanding individuals who have given freely of their time and talents, and best exemplify EGA's purpose. A total of 13 individuals may be acknowledged - one of each region, with a national recipient selected from among the region recipients and announced at our National Seminar.
Members are nominated by other members of EGA by the completion of a nomination form that is submitted to EGA headquarters by May 1. A copy of the current nomination form can be found here.
