AMP Meritorious Service Award
The AMP Meritorious Service Award recognizes an AMP member for particularly estimable service to the organization. The Recipient has demonstrated exceptional dedication and effort, over time and often behind-the-scenes, to provide invaluable service to AMP and its membership. In addition, the Recipient generally also provides especially notable service to the molecular pathology profession.
The Meritorious Service Award is distinct from the AMP Leadership Award in that service is an opportunity available to AMP members at any stage of their career and is often out of the spotlight afforded those in leadership positions. The award is not necessarily given annually but only when it is determined that service exists that warrants this special recognition. More than one recipient may be acknowledged if warranted.
Eligibility: The Recipient must have been an AMP member in good standing for at least the previous 5 years. The service being recognized is ongoing or is recently concluded.
Recognition: The recipients will be recognized at the AMP Annual Meeting. Depending on the nature of the awardee’s contributions, other venues, such as The Journal of Molecular Diagnostics (JMD), may be utilized. Each recipient will receive a certificate of appreciation and a congratulatory letter. Recipients will also be acknowledged on the AMP website.
Selection Process: Selection of recipients will be based on the assessment of:
- AMP membership status
- Nomination letter(s)
- Service to AMP that is consistent with the description and purpose of the Award
