2023 JSGD Significant Individual Lifetime Contribution Award “Call for Nomination"

Pranam JSGD Members,

We have many volunteers and unsung heroes who have served the Jain Society and community for years who never worried about recognition, but instead served out of love, duty and responsibility towards the community. We appreciate what they have done, and what they continue to do. Thus, they will not be forgotten and should be recognized as they truly represent our culture at its best.

Starting in 2016, the BOT and EC had decided on the addition of a “Significant Individual Lifetime Contribution Award" to a senior member in appreciation for their services and contribution to our society.  The procedure, criteria and nomination form are listed below. This award will be given during our 29th Annual Fund-raising event on Saturday, 29th April 2023, at The Meridian, Farmington Hills, Michigan. The sponsor should complete a nomination form and email back to Dr. Suresh Shah at before March 25th, 2023.  The selected candidate(s) will be informed by e-mail before April 22nd, 2023. The Nominations received after the deadline will NOT be considered.  For questions, please contact Awards Committee co-chairs Suresh Shah/Hemant Shah.
