 Chris Pavlides Networking for Life Award






TheChris PavlidesNetworking for Life Award, which honors both the memory and ideals of our founder, is given to the Beacon member who best embodies the principles that Chris championed throughout his life.


The criteria and the process, shown below, are both intended to be quite simple.  Each year, the Beacon membership is asked to submit nominations for the Award.  Each submission is reviewed by the Beacon Board of Directors, who select the final award recipient.  The winner is announced and receives the award at an all-member Beacon event.  Recipients have included Syd Weinstein, Dwayne Patterson, Viktor Ohnjec, Brian Simmermon, Bob Madonna, and Candida Seasock.
