MVCAC Honorary Members – 1955-2017
Honorary membership may be conferred on any person who has rendered exceptional, distinguished service in the interest of mosquito or vector control in the state of California. Nomination for this honor requires written endorsement by five or more Corporate Members addressed to the Board of Directors and accompanied by a written description of the individual’s qualifying accomplishments and achievements. Upon receipt of such an endorsement, the Executive Director will prepare a mail ballot and submit ballot and written description about the individual to all Corporate Members. Ballots must be returned within 30-days from the date of mailing. To receive special recognition through honorary membership in MVCAC, the nominee must receive two-thirds vote of the Corporate Membership, with the vote determined based on the number of timely submitted ballots. The results of the mail ballot will be announced at the next Association Board of Directors meeting after the ballot deadline. Honorary members pay no dues and they have no voting rights in the Association. The recipient may receive the award at the Annual Conference or any other Board meeting.
