Mary Ann Conrad was a long-time active member of the Arlington Genealogical Society. Mary Ann served on the Board continuously from 1989 until her death in January 2020 for a total of thirty-one years. She served as President for three years, First Vice President for three years, Parliamentarian for two years, Newsletter chair for six years and Collection Development chair for 21 years from 1999 through 2020.

Mary Ann gave very lovingly and willingly thousands of volunteer hours to our society. The Arlington Genealogical Society honors her memory with a Volunteer of the Year Award. This award will be given to an AGS member who has gone above and beyond to make our organization a better society.

The committee will consist of 3 of members. They will serve for a term of three years with at least one member of the committee going off each year. One person will rotate off at the end of 2021, 2022 and 2023. The President will appoint the members of this committee after the first award in 2021. If someone on the committee is nominated, then they should step down for the current cycle of voting. And the President should temporarily appoint an additional member to maintain an odd number of committee members.

Applications for the Volunteer of the Year will be accepted each January. Download it here. With a 2021 exception, the normal deadline to the Volunteer of the Year Committee will be noon of Feb. 1st. The committee will collect the nominations and select the winner after reviewing the applications and each nominee’s service to AGS. The winner will be announced at the March general membership meeting.

The winner will receive an AGS Certificate of Appreciation for being the Mary Ann Conrad Volunteer of the Year.
