The President’s Service Award was initiated in 1976, in lieu of the honorary fellowship for non-technical achievement. It is for: “Meritorious Continuous Service to the BioCommunications Association.” It carries the same prestige as the Fellowship, and may be given once during a President's two-year term.
The award was re-named in honor of BCA's founding president, Ralph Creer, in 1980. Recognizing those who have served the Association and its members with distinction, this award is given by BCA's President. Nominations may be directed to the BCA President.
