USPA Accepting Service Award Nominations
The USPA Membership Services Committee is currently seeking nominations for three of its service awards: the Lifetime Achievement Award (a maximum of one recipient annually), the Gold Medal for Meritorious Service (up to three recipients annually) and the Regional Achievement Award (up to five recipients annually).
Members can find award criteria and complete nomination instructions in the Skydiver’s Information Manual Section 8-1. According to the SIM, when submitting nominations, nominators must:
“a. Identify the nominee, including address and telephone number.
b. Prepare the citation in 30 words or less capturing the essence of the achievement for which the
nominee’s name has been submitted.
c. In 100 words or less, give complete, concise details justifying the award to the nominee, with
pertinent background information to assist the committee.”
Please submit nominations by June 30 so that USPA Headquarters staff has a chance to organize them prior to the summer USPA Board of Directors meeting that starts on July 12 in Arlington, Virginia. Members may send nominations either via email to Director of Membership Services Stephanie Seidel at firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail to USPA Director of Membership Services, 5401 Southpoint Centre Blvd., Fredericksburg, VA 22407.
