Abraham Ottenberg Service Award

Purpose:   The Abraham Ottenberg Service Award was established in 1973 by the Santa Clara Valley Section to recognize members who have rendered outstanding service to the Section. It is named after Abraham Ottenberg, a former member who devoted much of himself to service to the Section. The award currently consists of an engraved plaque and a check for $250.

Eligibility: The award recipient is selected from candidates nominated by members of the Section. Nominees must be members or affiliates of the Santa Clara Valley Section.

Nominations: Nominating letters should include a brief biography of the candidate and a description or evaluation of the service(s) to be recognized by the award. Seconding nominations are not required but will be accepted.

Nominations should be sent to:
Chair, Ottenberg Award Committee
Santa Clara Valley Section, ACS
P.O. BOX 395
PALO ALTO, CA 94302-0395

The deadline for nominations is usually around mid-June, but it depends upon the date selected for the picnic, at which the award is presented.

In 2013, the deadline will be about Saturday, June 15, 2013 (watch the newsletter for any update).
