USDF Announces New Volunteer of the Year Award

Dressage Press Release


The United States Dressage Federation (USDF) is pleased to announce the establishment of a new Volunteer of the Year award. Nominations are currently being accepted for this new award, which will be presented annually at the USDF Annual Convention. This is a prestigious award of national scope that recognizes one outstanding volunteer who has demonstrated exceptional commitment toward carrying out USDF's mission: "dedicated to education, the recognition of achievement, and the promotion of the sport of dressage."

Nominees must have volunteered at least 25 hours during the current year on any USDF-related project at the local, regional, or national level. They should have demonstrated consistent and cumulative volunteer activities over the past five years at USDF-recognized events, and have been a USDF group, intercollegiate/interscholastic, or participating member for at least five years.

"Our volunteer system is the backbone of USDF. We would not be able to achieve our goals without the tireless efforts of thousands of volunteers. Winning the new Volunteer of the Year award will be a very special honor," said USDF President Sam Barish.

The USDF Volunteer of the Year will be presented with a perpetual trophy at USDF's Annual Convention and Symposium, which will be held November 30-December 5, 2004 in Lexington, Kentucky. The award winner will also receive a "keeper" trophy and will be featured in USDF Connection.

Nominations may be made by any USDF member and are due August 31. Forms are available at www.usdf.org/Programs/awards/index.asp. Send nomination forms or questions to Cindy Vimont, 220 Lexington Green Circle, Suite 510, Lexington KY 40503; phone: (859) 271-7870; e-mail: cvimont@usdf.org.

Founded in 1973, the United States Dressage Federation is a nonprofit membership organization dedicated to education, the recognition of achievement, and the promotion of the sport of dressage.
