Club des Méritants (Award Club)

Club des Méritants (Award Club)

The Association des Blais d'Amérique wants to recognize and honor its members’ volunteer work during the fiscal year (June 1 to May 31). Any member in good standing can be named a member of the Club through his/her implication in various Association activities:

  • Research and genealogical aid
  • Recruiting new member
  • Recruiting financial sponsors
  • Journal des Blais
  • Annual meeting
  • Blais history
  • Sale of promotional items
  • Regional representation
  • Active role in Board of Directors
  • Active role in various Association committees
  • Any other involvement deserving recognition


Volunteers are easily taken for granted within an association, they nevertheless play important roles. A tangible recognition of their work will thank them and stimulate others to imitate them.

Members of the Board or any other member in good standing can nominate a member for the “Club des Méritants”. To do so, send the name of the candidate and the reasons for which he/she should become a member of the “Club des Méritants”. Nominations must be sent in before July 1st:

  • by email: services@blaisdamerique.com
  • by regular mail: Association des Blais d'Amérique, CP 62014, CSP La Pérade, Québec QC G1W 4Z2 Canada 


The Board of Directors decides which volunteers will be honored. The selected volunteers will receive a laminated plaque for their contribution to the advancement of the Association des Blais d’Amérique at the Annual General Meeting, usually held during the annual meeting.
