Do you know a man in your community who stands out by living his life in Mission?

Here is your community’s chance to honor that man!

The 19th Annual Ron Hering Mission of Service Awards will be presented to one man or group of men (such as an Integration Group) from each Region / Area who is breathing life into a Mission of Service outside the ManKind Project.

Ron Hering was one of the original founders of MKP and this award was established in his name to honor those among us who are living their missions through action in the world.

The process the Regions/Centers/Areas use for nominating a man or men is being left to each Region / Area — each having its own system for nomination and selection. The Elder Community has stepped up in many Regions / Areas to spearhead this effort. Contact your Region / Area Director to find your local point man.

For New Warrior Brothers:

Think of the men you know!! Collect information about a man or group you know as a model of service in your community and bring that information to your Region / Area Ron Hering Award representative or team. If you don’t know who that is, contact your community Director or Steward.
