Initially called the Service Award, in 2002 the award was renamed to highlight the importance of those members who contribute through their efforts to develop and implement initiatives and innovations in more effectively serving our membership as well as the wider psychoanalytic and psychological community.
Individuals who have made an outstanding contribution through their leadership within the division, its sections and local chapters are eligible to be nominated for this award.
Nominees are solicited from the board members and former honorees, evaluated by the Awards Committee and presented to the division Board of Directors, which makes the final determination of recipients. Please direct any questions to Mary-Joan Gerson, the current chair of this committee.
