Service Award Nominations Due Feb. 15

Each year two UIRA members are honored for their volunteer service post-retirement. The Community Service Award honors a UIRA member for service to the community at large and the Volunteer Service Award honors a UIRA member for service to the university. The criteria for the awards are:

• A nominee must be a UIRA member and must have been retired for a period of at least two (2) years.

• The awards are based on outstanding service carried out since retirement. Activities prior to retirement are not considered.

• Volunteer service may include a wide range of activities that make a positive impact.

• Recipients must attend the annual meeting to accept the award.

Any UIRA member may submit a nomination, including nominating themselves. Please include a one-page letter describing how the nominee has successfully contributed through involvement in one or more activities, and a one-page biography, which includes the nominee’s name, mailing address, email address, and phone number. 

Nominations are due Wednesday, February 15, 2023 to Awards Committee chair Billie Townsend at
