Governor’s Volunteer Service Award Nominations accepted now

The deadline for nominations for the 2024 Governor’s Volunteer Service Award is approaching quickly. 

“The deadline is Feb. 13, so there is still time remaining to submit nominations for the 2024 Governor’s Volunteer Service Award,” said Tammy Proctor, the Pender County Coordinator for the 2024 Volunteer Service Awards.

The awards program, created by the Office of the Governor in 1979, recognizes North Carolina’s most dedicated volunteers. Through the years the award has been bestowed on thousands of North Carolinians who have shown concern and compassion for their neighbors by volunteering in their local community.

“Each county selects up to 10 individuals, businesses, groups/teams, and one paid director of volunteers to be recognized for their outstanding contributions to our community,” said Proctor. 

One of the nominees will be nominated for the Governor’s Medallion Award for Volunteer Service, which is awarded to approximately the top 20 volunteers in the state. A local committee evaluates the nominations. 

“We have several amazing volunteers in Pender County,” said Proctor. “We urge every organization, director, or business to nominate someone today.”

Printed nomination forms are available from the Greater Topsail Area Chamber of Commerce & Tourism office, 13375 NC Hwy 50, Surf City. Nomination forms are available online at or via this link,, or download a PDF here.  

Nomination forms are also available via email by contacting the chamber at

The deadline to submit nominations is Feb. 12, 2024.  

Award recipients will be recognized during National Volunteer Week, April 21-27, 2024.
