Distinguished Service Award: Individual

OCPRSA members may nominate a fellow member, either for outstanding life-long career contributions to the goals and ethics of the public relations profession or for demonstrating exemplary dedication to a particular group by giving time, talent or other resources.

All current members in good standing of OCPRSA, who have been members of this chapter for more than one year, are eligible for the 2019 Distinguished Service Award, with two exceptions: (1) the current year’s chapter president is ineligible; and (2) the previous year’s Distinguished Service honoree is ineligible.

Judging Criteria:

– Service to PRSA, particularly to OC/PRSA, but may also include contributions to other PRSA chapters and the national PRSA organization Exemplary practice of the highest standards and ethics of the public relations profession

– Mentorship of young professionals

A panel of three former Distinguished Service Award winners, including the previous year’s honoree, will select this year’s recipient.

Nominations are due by Friday, August 21, 2020.
