Karen Christine Miller (1945-2003) was an active contributor to the growth of JCNA for more than 30 years. She chaired the original Concours Committee, co-wrote the JCNA Rule Book, served on the Business Committee, maintained the JCNA roster and was a Regional Director
She conceived and developed the Andrew Whyte and Fred Horner Awards and originated the JCNA AGM Technical Seminars and Annual Newsletter Awards. Professionally, Karen was Associate Editor of Jaguar Journal from 1985 and the Jaguar Cars North American Archivist from 1990 to 2003.
This award is presented annually to the JCNA affiliate newsletter editor who best represents Karen Miller’s talents and ideals as a writer, editor, historian and ultimate Jaguar club volunteer. The recipient will qualify by producing, in one year at least four newsletters to the highest standards of editorial content and production.
Why is this award important? Because a good newsletter is the lifeline for every local club. It contains news, the calendar of area event, technical advice and features of local interest. The editor who puts out a timely, well-produced publication packed with information is directly contributing to keeping the organization healthy and active.
