The PDA Honor Awards were developed to recognize members who provide exceptional leadership and service to the Association. Since 1958, these awards have been bestowed on members to recognize the significant contributions they have made through their volunteer activities.
The PDA Honor Awards Committee is seeking to significantly expand the pool of volunteers nominated for these awards each year, in an effort to consider deserving individuals who have not been considered before for a PDA Honor Award. There are eight awards for which the nominees are determined through nominations, marked below with an asterisk (*).
Award nominations are typically open from early September to mid-November each year. Please take a look at the updated descriptions of the PDA Honor Awards below. If you have a mentor, colleague, or peer who is actively involved in PDA and whom you think is deserving of one of these prestigious awards, be sure to nominate them for consideration!
