GSA OF THE YEAR AWARD
This award is given to a GSA extraordinaire who provides outstanding service to New Hampshire’s Tourism Industry. The GSA of the Year often goes above and beyond to assist NHGSA with its mission and programs. This GSA is making a difference by volunteering at centers, providing guests with a unique experience, helping to train and mentor other GSAs, and doing so with endless spirit and enthusiasm.
HOSPITALITY FROM THE HEART AWARD
This award is given to the GSA who spends endless hours trying to go unnoticed and gives generous contributions to other GSAs from their warm heart. Candidate should have a down to earth personality, and make everyone feel comfortable by demonstrating altruism and helpfulness to others.
This award is given to the GSA that serves the GSA program by volunteering their time with enthusiasm. They are someone who shares their training expertise with others, while still continuing to learn about the state of New Hampshire through GSA special events, tours, and specialized trainings.
JUDI WINDOW ‘IT’S ALWAYS SUNNY IN NH’ AWARD
The recipient of this award not only has a sunny personality, but puts the motto “It’s Always Sunny in NH” into practice while volunteering. This GSA handles tough situations and rainy days with poise and a positive outlook, and leaves guests and fellow GSAs feeling welcomed and supported.
This award honors individuals who give something extra making them an invaluable part of our state and a critical part of the GSA organization. This award may be given to a GSA or someone who is not a GSA. They can be either a volunteer or professional. The nominating committee may choose to award zero Merit Awards or many, depending on who’s nominated. If you see a GSA go above and beyond while volunteering, or do something special for a center or event, they are a good candidate for a Merit Award.
This status is given to a GSA (living or who has passed away) who has honorably resigned or retired their GSA position, but who retains their GSA membership.
This can be given to anyone (GSA, Volunteer, NH Tourism Industry Employee or Friend of GSA) at any time to commend them for something wonderful, great customer service, friendly personality, helpful in situations. “Kudos” may be given multiple times to one person. Anyone who receives kudos recognition throughout the year will be brought to the attention of the nominating committee for the larger awards.
