Wine Society Chapter of the Year Awards

 

The WS Chapter Representatives are vital to the success of the overall operations of the Wine Society from their efforts in local education, membership and overall commitment to the society. As such, the Board of Managers created a program for wine representatives in 2008 to recognize their efforts within the chapters.

Annually, an award will be given to the “Wine Society Chapter of the Year” in each small, medium and large chapter category and overall.
