The SFMA is looking to recognize the many volunteers and supporters who dedicate their time to help drive forward our mission. Keeping with the theme of “recognition,” the SFMA is launching the first ever “Volunteer of the Year” Award. The runner-up and winner of this award will be unveiled during the Annual Meeting dinner program held on November 2, 2021 at the Signature Grand in Davie.


Nominees must be an employee of member company in good standing with the SFMA. If the nominee is not an employee of a member company, then they must meet Eligibility #2.

A “volunteer” is non-paid and considered someone that serves on an active SFMA committee or event committee.
