Larry Dale Coach of the Year Award
The Larry Dale Coach of the Year Award is given annually at the Spring Convention to an individual member of the Ontario District, who has shown outstanding musical talent in coaching District quartets/choruses and who has done so in an unselfish and unassuming manner.
Every District member, quartet, or chapter can suggest the name(s) of one or more individuals who have fulfilled the ideals that Larry Dale epitomized. The nominee must be a member of the Ontario District (regular chapter or Frank Thorne).
Submit the name, a short resume, and the reasons why they deserve the award. Sign it and send it to the District V.P of Music and Performance by March 15th.
The District VP - Music and Performance is responsible for administering this award. He will ensure that the Selection committee receives all nominations, meets, and communicates its decision to the District Awards Chairman in a timely fashion.
The Larry Dale Award Selection Committee consists of the previous Larry Dale Award winners. The most recent available winner will be the chair. They will receive the nomination submissions from the VP-M & P, adjudicate them, and choose the winner in a timely fashion. The chairman will report to the VP-M&P that they have met, made a decision, and sent the name to the District Awards Chairman.
Only one Larry Dale Award will be given in any one year.
It is entirely possible that the Larry Dale Award may not be given every consecutive year.
A member can only win this award once.
