PESA Distinguished Membership Award & PESA Meritorious Service Award
PESA Distinguished Service Award
The PESA Distinguished Service Award (DSA) recognises an outstanding long term commitment to the Society (including leadership and involvement in Committees), the profession and to the upstream industry. It is the highest honour bestowed on an individual member by the Society. A recipient of the DSA becomes a Distinguished Member of the society and has all the rights of an Active Member but shall not be required to pay any subscription.
Normally, not more than one Distinguished Service Award shall be made in a single year and that an individual can only receive the award once. Recipients of a DSA will receive a suitable inscribed certificate and medal.
PESA Meritorious Service Award
The PESA Meritorious Service Award (MSA) recognizes who voluntarily provide exceptional service to PESA at State or Federal level over a significant period of time.
Normally, not more than three Meritorious Service Awards shall be made in a single year and an individual can only receive the award once. Recipients of the MSA will receive a suitable inscribed certificate and medal.
State Branch Committees nominate candidates to the Federal Executive. Both awards will not be awarded more frequently than annually at a ceremony at the PESA AGM, held at the APPEA Conference. If in the opinion of the PESA Federal Executive suitably qualified candidates have not been nominated, consideration of the awards shall be deferred until the following year.
Recipients of these awards must be members of PESA.
