*Special Commendation Awardee

Restrictions

More than one Member of the Association may be considered in any one year for this award, but Honorary Members should generally be excluded.

Guidelines for Consideration of Candidates

The emphasis should be on long-term and, at the same time, meaningful service to the Association. The term singular does not necessarily mean without precedent, but rather that the activity be specific as distinguished from general service (such as membership on committees).

Procedure for Recommendation

Nominations for this award should be submitted, along with documentation, to the Chairman of the Honors and Awards Committee at Association Headquarters. The recommendations of the Committee will be submitted to the Advisory Council which will submit its selection to the Executive Committee for final action.

Description of Award

This award is a walnut plaque with the AAPG emblem in brass and a brass plate bearing the recipient’s name, the date, and citation.

History

This award was established by Executive Committee action in 1971.

Funding

The AAPG provides funding for the Distinguished Service Award.
