John J. Clark Award
To be presented annually to an ÉPA member who has done outstanding service for the Association. A cumulative service achievement as well as current service may be considered. Each year, the vice president serving as Awards Committee Chairperson will appoint a committee normally of the three most recent recipients of the award to select the next recipient. If in the opinion of the committee, no member has provided an outstanding service to the ÉPA during the year, the award need not be made for the period.
A member may win this award only once. The name of the award winner will be published in the official journal with a citation setting forth the services which were the basis for the award. There will also be an appropriate token of appreciation and a certificate prepared for presentation to the recipient.
