This year, being an odd-numbered year, each board has to consider nominees for the Jack London Service Award. Each CWC branch may nominate one member to receive a Jack London Award in recognition of outstanding service to the organization. The award honors a member whose service to the CWC and/or a branch has been exemplary. The JLA may only be received by a member once. It is not mandatory that a branch designates a recipient simply because the opportunity exists. This year, the honorees will receive their awards at a luncheon on Sunday, October 22, at the Oakland Airport Holiday Inn. A two-hour business meeting will precede the award luncheon.
