TGCC Awards Programs

One of the purposes and objectives of TGCC, as specified in the TGCC Constitution, is to “provide recognition for outstanding contributors to the dive community”. TGCC accomplishes this through its various Awards Programs, which are designed to “promote education in the dive community” and to “encourage, coordinate and promote cooperation” among divers and member clubs. The TGCC 1st Vice President normally oversees these programs, which are defined in the TGCC Bylaws and its Attachments. These awards are typically presented at the annual TGCC Awards Banquet.

  • Member of the Year – Recognition of an individual for work done for TGCC and/or the dive community.
  • Neptune Award – A point based individual award based upon events/contests sanctioned by TGCC. (See TGCC By-Laws – Attachment 1)
  • Lifetime Achievement Award – Recognition for work done by an individual in and for the dive community for a significant number of years. (See TGCC By-Laws – Attachment 2)
  • Service Awards – Recognition for the work done for TGCC by departing Executive Committee officers and other officers of TGCC.
  • Scholarship Awards – Support and promotion for higher education of members of the dive community. TGCC Scholarship Application form
