This award is presented annually to an active chapter member who has demonstrated his or her commitment, dedication and professionalism to their chapter members, co-workers and to the community. Most of all, it is to their safety profession, including the many years of active involvement in organizations just like the ASSP that serves as the major criteria for selection.
