Re: Sean MacBride Humanitarian Award Nominations
Date: November, 2016
In accordance with Article XXVII of the National Constitution of the Ancient Order of Hibernians in America, we are sending this letter to all eligible members to request nominees for the 2017 Sean MacBride Humanitarian Award. This award will be conferred to memorialize the human rights contributions made by Nobel Peace Laureate Dr. Sean MacBride, and to recognize the efforts of others who make similar contributions in the cause of peace, justice and the economic wellbeing of the Irish people. This award will be conferred without regard to the nominee’s race, creed, color, sex, or national origin. We require (1) that the nominator provide a typed biography of the nominee, not to exceed 500 words, and (2) that the nominator also ascertain that, if elected, the nominee will accept the award at a time and place designated by the National Boards. In addition, each nominator will certify above his/her signature that his/her nominee does not stand in opposition to any moral principle espoused by the AOH/LAOH.
To be accepted, all nominations must be returned to Danny O’Connell, AOH National Vice President, 340 E Kline Street, Girard, Ohio, 44420, (DJOCONNELL@YSU.EDU), and postmarked no later than January 15, 2017.
