WHAT ARE SERVICE AWARDS?

The IEPPV Service Award 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 Service Merits for specific actions as detailed below, and is presented at the annual IEPPV Awards Banquet to any member(s) having completed the requirements for the Award in the preceding twelve months.

Requirements for Service Awards
  1. A recipient of the Award must have been an IEPPV member in good standing at least three continuous years prior to receiving it.
  2. One hundred (100) Service Merits are required for the Award, earned as listed below in the Schedule of Merits.
  3. After receipt of the initial Award, each additional one hundred (100) Service Merits earned will entitle the member to receive a Service Bar to be worn with the Service Medallion and an additional Service Award Certificate to honor the continued dedication to IEPPV.
  4. IEPPV Service Merits will not be awarded for participation in PPC, PPA and other organization-sponsored activities, as those groups already have award programs in place to honor such dedication.
  5. Reporting Service Award Merits earned will be the responsibility of each individual IEPPV member, using the form below and available at www.ieppv.com. Reports are to be submitted quarterly, with the deadlines for submission being the third Wednesdays (regular scheduled IEPPV meeting dates) of February, May, August and November for the previous three month period ending the last day of January, April, July and October.
  6. Service Award Merit record-keeping will be the responsibility of the IEPPV Awards Chair, who will ensure the preparation of Medallions, Bars and Certificates to be presented at each year’s Awards Banquet.
