The Outstanding Appointed Officer

(Ron Robinson Memorial Award)

     The first known recipient was presented during Bob Hunt’s year (1979-80). Over the years, this award has been known by other names such as Outstanding Executive Committee Member and the Ira Moser Memorial Award (1998-2001).   Please see the history of the Ira Moser Award for details.   The appointed officer included the Ambassador position until the Ira Moser Memorial Award was established in 1994. There have been three (3) ties for this recognition: Steve Pindell #28921 and Doc McCarty #14783 shared the award for 1983-84 year; Mike Harris #24801 and Peter Bakos #32786 shared this award for the 1990-91 year; and Michael Sawyer #36403 and the Reverse Raffle Committee shared this award for the 1993-94 year. The Ron Robinson Award was instituted at the annual meeting held in Sioux Falls, 2002 to recognize the outstanding appointed officer of the year. This award is sponsored by the Ohio JCI Senate.
