Announcements and Updates

January 19, 2015

We are pleased to announce that the update of the Couple of the Year Manual has been completed. Most of the changes are minor. One of the most significant changes is removing the requirement that the Overseas Couple of the Year must attend Wing Ding, although they are highly encouraged to share in that experience if they are able.

Both the Couple of the Year and the Overseas Couple of the Year resumes have been modified slightly to remove a couple items that we have heard are barriers to having Couples participate in the selection process. There are also a few tweaks to clarify what information goes where. The changes are minor enough that it is not necessary for any Couple currently involved in the process to convert over to the new resume. However, if they decide to use the new layout, they can move their information over to the new pages 4 & 5 and continue to use their original pages 1-3. There is a new “Word” version of the resume which has been added to the website. Couples are reminded that if they choose to use this version they must adhere to the guidelines which are listed on the introductory page of the “Word” version of the resume.

The Couple of the Year Score Sheet has also been updated, mainly moving the point value from the left to the right side of the page in an effort to make it easier for the selection panelists to score. None of the changes to the resume required a change to the score sheet. Again, this was done so that a couple would not be required to change their resume.

Links to the updated Couple of the Year Manual and the Resumes are now posted on the Couple of the Year page of the Membership Enhancement web site. Please use these to update any hard copies of the Manual that you may have and feel free to pass them on as appropriate.

Also new to the web site is a list of previous Region Couples of the Year who are eager to mentor any Couple of the Year. If your Chapter, District or Region Membership Enhancement Officer or Couple of the Year Coordinator doesn’t have the answer to your question then this is another resource to get the opinion of someone who has “been there, done that.” Always remember to check the Couple of the Year Manual for the current policy.

We believe this is the most “FUN” program in GWRRA and provides great opportunities to increase your “Safety” and “Knowledge” and make more “FRIENDS” as you move through the levels of the program! Make a New Year’s resolution to step out of your comfort zone and participate in the Couple of the Year selection in your District. If you aren’t a current Couple of the Year, make a resolution to attend a Couple of the Year selection and see for yourself what the “FUN” is all about!  If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to send us an email or give us a call.
