The Archie Vinitsky Awards

THE AWARD
The Archie Vinitsky Award is an Award presented to a person who has given the most outstanding voluntary service at international and/or regional level in support of the activities of the IOA. The Award will next be presented in 2014 at a Conference of an IOA Full Member association.

QUALIFICATIONS
The Award is essentially for services which have been given entirely voluntarily, but in the event of a potential recipient being professionally involved in a related capacity, a very clear distinction must be made by the proposer between their professional and voluntary activities. It is most likely that the qualifying period of any candidate will be over a number of preceding years. The Award will not be presented to current IOA Coordination Committee members or previous Award recipients.
