RSPA President's Note - May 2013 - RSPA Industry Recognition Awards And Celebration

Industry Recognition

Each year at our annual member convention and trade show, RetailNOW, RSPA presents several awards to companies, industry leaders and innovators. Some of the awards are fairly new and some have a long history. Here’s a little background information on our awards as we get ready for RetailNOW 2013…

Service Recognition Award – This award has a history as long as our organization. It recognizes those members who volunteer their time to serve the membership and the association. Did you know that, in many cases, the RSPA Chairman of the Board has served our members as a volunteer for at least seven years? That level of commitment to members, the association and the industry deserves recognition.

H.O. Whistler Award – Named in honor of one the association’s original members, this distinctive award is only presented to recognize a member who has worked on a project that provided an exceptional benefit to the association and our members. H.O. Whistler worked tirelessly to move the association forward during the years of formation. This is not an annual award: in the past seven years, RSPA has awarded just two H.O. Whistler Awards.
