Sustained Service Award
The Sustained Service Award is presented to recognize sustained, significant service and contributions to AIAA by members of the Institute. The nominee/recipient must be a member in good standing who has shown continuing dedication to the interests of the Institute by making significant and sustained contributions over a period of time, typically 10 years or more. Active participation and service at the local section/regional level, and/or the national level is a potential discriminator in the evaluation of candidates. A maximum of 20 awards are presented each year. These annual awards are presented at a Forum or activity with which the recipient is most associated or active, or may be presented by the recipient’s local AIAA section at an appropriate section event. A nomination form, scoresheet and additional information (no more than one page) that provides details to substantiate the scores for various activities is required. Nominees must score a minimum of 100 points on the score sheet. Letters of endorsement are not required for this award.
