While there are many things we will miss without a Convention this year, we could not let the summer pass without recognizing the amazing folks who have volunteered their time, energy, and talents as National Workers throughout this past year. We will be honoring our 2019-20 National Worker Service Award Recipients in person alongside our 2020-21 National Worker Service Award Recipients at our 2021 Convention. However, we couldn’t wait to thank you publicly for stepping up and “Riding for the Multiples of America Brand” throughout the 2019-20 club year.
We will be sharing a series of blog posts recognizing this year’s 5, 10, 20, & 25 Year Service Award Recipients. These awards acknowledge the recipients’ commitment and years of hard work volunteering for the organization. Each of these impressive service records began, as all journeys do, with a single step. Which is why we are starting our posts of gratitude by recognizing those members who took the first step this past year and volunteered as National Workers for the very first time.
