The Robert F. DeMeter Chapter Service Award was established in 1998 in memory of the late LTC (Ret) Robert F. DeMeter, USMC, a former Chapter President (1989), to annually recognize a chapter member for outstanding service to the chapter. The award is the most prestigious award the Chapter can bestow upon one of its members.
The award consists of a certificate and a rotating trophy, which the recipient retains for a period of one year. Nominations for the award are being solicited from the general membership. Please submit in hardcopy or email to Secretary Sara Ballard NLT 28 February 2019. A selection committee will determine the winner, and the award will be presented during the March general membership meeting.
