Joe Liles Lifetime Achievement Award

This is the criteria the CDD Committee looks to for selecting the recipient of the award:

  1. Excellence in directing their own choruses consistently, at a high level.
  2. Willingness to share skills with other choruses and directors.
  3. Encouragement of other directors through participation at education schools.
  4. Giving of time and resources for the advancement of the society through encouragement of directors and demonstrating excellence in performance and singing.

This award was created as a way to honor some of those who by their demonstration of lifelong commitment to the Barbershop style by raising the standards of excellence have, through their leadership, helped us move forward.
