Awards Ceremony

February 2021 Update

The 2020 awards ceremony was re-envisioned due to the pandemic, transforming from the traditional in-person gathering with food, music and a full awards presentation program, to a Facebook Live video event, ... "bring your own heaty appetizers to a computer screen or mobile device near you." 

The MAGC board and Northern Lights committee have not yet determined how the 2021 ceremony will be presented. You can expect a live or webcasted event in late May or early June. When a decision is made, we'll update this page and send an update to members via our Friday member email.
