Pi Alpha, the ASCLS-PA President’s Honor Role for Outstanding Service, is presented as a recognition of the abiding interest of members who have volunteered their time, experience, and personal resources to their district society and/or ASCLS-PA.
To be eligible for the Pi alpha Award, one must:
· Be a member, in any category, of ASCLS-PA.
· Be nominated by a district society, a member of the ASCLS-PA Board of Directors, or any member of this Society.
· Have made a gainful contribution to the activities of a district society and/or ASCLS-PA as evidenced by a very brief explanation
to accompany the nominations.
Candidates for the Pi Alpha award will be nominated on forms supplied by the ASCLS-PA Awards Committee. Nominations will be compiled by the district society presidents and forwarded to the ASCLS-PA President, who alone will make the final selections.
In addition to the nominations received, the ASCLS-PA President shall have the authority to award additional Pi Alpha awards at his/her discretion, if necessary.
The award will be in the form of a ribbon or sticker to be attached to the badge at the ASCLS-PA Annual Meeting, as well as a letter from the ASCLS-PA President. The names of the Pi Alpha recipients will be announced at the annual ASCLS-PA awards ceremony, published in the ceremony program, and in the ASCLS-PA Newsletter.
An effort will be made to ensure an equitable distribution of awards among all active district societies.
Nominees for the Omicron Sigma award, but not selected, may be considered for the Pi Alpha award.
