Quarter-Century Club, 40-Year Club & Half-Century Club
Each year, MNLA honors your colleagues who have worked in the industry for 25, 40, and 50 years or more. These designations are called the Quarter-Century, 40-Year, and Half-Century Clubs. The recipients of this honor are noted for contributions to the professional development and the growth of the industry, as well as their dedication and commitment.
Candidates must have completed 25 years of green industry service to qualify for the Quarter-Century Club, 40 years of green industry service to qualify for the 40-Year Club, and 50 years of green industry service to qualify for the Half-Century Club. Candidates must have been employed by an MNLA member firm in each of the preceding five years.
Selected candidates for the Quarter-Century Club and Half-Century Club will be honored with a commemorative plaque and lapel pin acknowledging their status. These tributes are presented during a special ceremony at the Great Lakes Trade Exposition every January.
The Century Club Application is now available. Please download the Application (PDF) below.
