Maryanne Pflug Spirit Award 2013

Presented each year since 2003, this award honors the memory of a much-loved and cherished former QRCA member and her contributions to QRCA.

The award upholds and celebrates QRCA’s cultural heritage of collegiality among members and commitment to the organization, and is awarded to a member who demonstrates "spirit” in the association. The recipient is selected by a Committee of former recipients, from candidates nominated by members. The award is a large, laser engraved martini glass, in honour of Maryanne’s favourite beverage.

Please take a moment to think about a QRCA member who exhibits the qualities and characteristics that Maryanne embodied: friendliness, creativity, commitment to QRCA, leadership, optimism, humor, mentorship, a passion for life, and unconditional positive regard for all. Do you have somebody in mind? Please nominate her/him!

How to nominate:

  1. Nominations must include a statement (50-75 words will suffice) explaining the QRCA member’s qualities and why he/she deserves the award. Think of your statement as a testimonial.
  2. Nominations need to be submitted by Friday, September 6th to Marty Johnson at or by filling out the form below. A Committee of past recipients will review the nominations and decide the 2013 recipient.
  3. Each member must submit her/his own, separate nominating statement. Saying, "I nominate him/her too!” will not suffice. Also, it doesn’t help to simply copy somebody else’s nominating statement. Have it come from your heart.
  4. Also:
    • You may only nominate one person in any given year.
    • You may resubmit a nomination from a past year if you wish.
    • The Award Recipient need not be in San Diego to accept the award.
    • Prior recipients are not eligible to be nominated.
    • To spread recognition through the membership, the Presidents Award and the Maryanne Pflug Spirit Award recipients will not be the same.
