Beginning in 2017, MGA created the Awards of Excellence program.  These awards were established to highlight the people who are dedicated to Michigans most vulnerable individuals.  Held at the annual spring conference these awards honor those who exemplify excellence in guardianship.

The awards are given to the following categories:

  • Guardian of the Year
  • Judge of the Year
  • Corporate Partner of the Year
  • Legislator of the Year

Corporate partner and legislator of the year are chosen by the MGA board of directors.

We ask our membership to nominate individuals for the Guardian of the Year and Judge of the Year.

Our 2019 Guardian of the Year was awarded to Joy Ebig. The Judge of the Year will be awarded at our Fall 2019 Conference.

By clicking on the appropriate button below you can read through the criteria for each category and the process you will need to follow to nominate the individual  you believe best exemplifies each category.

Please note that this years nominations for Judge of the Year must be submitted NO LATER than September 1, 2019
