Community Service Awards Committee

Summer 2008 – Motion to Form Community Service Awards Panel and Approval of Membership (Serving President as Ex-officio Chair; Bob Eberlein; Jack Pugh; Executive Director)

The Awards Committee (established in the Winter Meeting as an umbrella committee to oversee awards committees) has requested that a Community Service Award Committee be formed to designate award winners as appropriate for awards for exceptional service, such as the Lifetime Service Award. The Committee is charged with determining which awards, regular or special, are appropriate for community service, and determining who should receive them. Jack Pugh and Bob Eberlein have received the Lifetime Service Recognition Award and the Executive Director has the most visibility of service. These awards will not involve any money. It was moved by Bob Eberlein and seconded by Erling Moxnes to form such a committee, the Serving President (chair), Bob Eberlein, Jack Pugh and the Executive Director to constitute the committee. Motion passed.
