April 01, 2024

It is time to nominate one or more of our Institute members for the 2024 Goodwyn Holmes Award. I urge you to think seriously and nominate a person who meets or exceeds the following criteria:

  • A person who has given of their time, energy and talents over an extended period of time, making significant contributions of service, and having a marked impact on the Institute.
  • An individual who is of good reputation and standing within the Institute and our industries.
  • An individual who upholds and promotes the high standards and traditions of the Institute.
  • An individual who has not previously received the GHA. (Former recipients listed on http://www.thecoalinstitute.org/goodwyn-holmes-award)
Nominating letters/emails should contain as much information as you feel appropriate about the nominee’s involvement and accomplishments within The Coal Institute and any other professional, civic, family, or personal information you feel enhances their nomination to receive this award. This nomination can be for any member, not just those who are serving or have served as President.
