Commendation Award Recipients

The Commendation Award recognizes outstanding service to The Company. A Commendation may be awarded for any outstanding service that brings distinction to the Company or a chapter or improves services to members. The member's work may have been a one time contribution or continuing service over a period of time in one or more areas. The Commendation Award was first given in 2006.
