ADDITIONAL BENEFITS

Service Awards (Click for More Info)

The Vera and Elmer Kingham Service Award

IEPPV Service Merits are earned by participation in the affiliate’s activities – attending a meeting, assisting with a workshop, serving on the Board of Directors, and many more. At the end of each year, the member with the highest number of Service Merits will receive the Vera and Elmer Kingham Service Award and be awarded a scholarship to West Coast School Directors.

 

The IEPPV Service Award Medallion

This medallion is designed to recognize members for dedication to furthering the aims of the organization. The Award consists of the Service Medallion, which may be worn at all photographic functions, and the Service Award Certificate, which can be displayed prominently in studio or office. The Service Award is achieved by earning 100 Service Merits for specific actions as detailed above, and is presented at the annual IEPPV Awards Banquet to each member having completed the requirements for the Award in the preceding twelve months.

The Chuck Jones Memorial Service Award

The Chuck Jones Award seeks to recognize members who epitomize the ideals of the late Chuck Jones, who died in 2006 while serving as IEPPV President. One of Chuck’s highest goals for IEPPV was the advancement of professionalism among photographers through education, especially by encouraging experienced members to foster excellence among younger and less-experienced members by mentoring them.

 

The President’s Award for Exceptional Service

The President’s Award is presented at the annual IEPPV Awards Banquet when, in the judgment of the outgoing IEPPV President, a member has distinguished him- or herself through service to the organization that rises above and beyond the call of duty.
